skimming is something totally different, it's making a copy of the information on a bank or creditcard. Second Life doesn't read your cardinfo.

You most likely mean phishing. the best way to protect yourself against that is simply not give your pw or other important information.If you do you ask for problems yourself.

What you encountered can be a bot, just ignore and mute it.

Don't start a list on the forum, using names isn't allowed.

thanks for Your Answer, Alwin.

skimming might be the wrong word, but phising looks either wrong.

Its usually not a bot (even if it might be possible in some. Joseph Weizenbaum's(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Weizenbaum) Eliza(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ELIZA) grandchilds are smart today)

Its definitely a person (cheep paid and with many open IMs).

My interest is less to protect myself. Its the question how a reasonable protection strategy could be formed.

you can't protect others for being ignorant and give important info, that happens since paswords came in use and will last till the last day. There are warnings everywhere, in sl , on tv, in magazines, articles, blogs and thousends more....
