This guy who had scammed me 50m said he would pay me back etc.

I ended up in this call with him (not talking) and his mate who was talking. The call ended up just to be a waste of my time and I realise that I am never going to get my 50m back.

The skype call was 3:30 mins long, and I know that you can get peoples ip's when ur on a skype call with them. I was just wondering how secure skype is and whether my account could be at risk?

Skype is secure. You are connected to Skype's servers and not to the user, and it is not possible to transfer files or data throughout the system without your approval first.

No you can't. The only way for you to get keylogged is if you run a malware infection.

All he could get is your ip if skype routes your call directly. Therefore the worst that could happen is probably a ddos attack, assuming you have a reasonable hardware or software firewall.

Don't open any files people like that send you either, as it's easy to disguise a keylogger as a jpeg or the like.

There's some odd links being passed around of late that apparently grab IPs, so you'll want to avoid those from him too, hope you're able to recover that money back quickly.
