Just got this from a guy that DDOSd me on Twitch. How legit does it sound or is it just someone trying to scam me?

Lolol. Did you install the VPN Client?
Basically, if you did, I'd get it off your machine now, then change your Skype account details (password).
Probably best to run a virus scan too.
Wasn't a DDoS. :-)
If it was a DDoS, which doesn't sound likely as you weren't down for that long, then the VPN would have taken your IP when you started using it and reported it back to the user.
Sorry for the multiple posting, but if you didn't install the VPN, then the guy has found a vulnerability in Twitch which needs to be reported.

No I haven't. I don't trust anyone so figured I would post his suggestion back here to gather further feedback and see the majority view if it's just some hack site or something needed to prevent further issues while streaming.

Tifa already informed me via Twitch chat that it wasn't DDOS. I don't know what else causes internet loss for 5 seconds enough to make all Runescape reconnect and xSplit to only drop frames.
