Skype Sleazeballs

Skype has unexpectedly cut off my account. When I emailed them, asking them why, they say I've violated their agreement! How this could be is a complete mystery to me since I simply use the service to call my mother.  I have a lot of money remaining in my Skype account, money that they apparently plan on keeping. Needless to say, I'm completely taken back by all this. It's impossible to get anyone on the phone or a chat who has authorization to resolve this. (And they have my money for free, so where's their motivation?) For all of you who are considering Skype, I'd think again about giving them any money. Skype is a sleazy company. There are much better and cheaper services available, such as Google Hangouts.
