Perhaps the message you got about "details coming from another service" was referring to a smartphone app?
Do you have one that uses hotmail and skype?
In any case, deleting your hotmail account makes that unimportant to you at this point. The scammer can no longer send hotmail or skype messages to you. If they cannot talk to you directly and get a response, they will give up. Simple as that.
If you get any messages from any unknown person on Skype, or any other email block them, and do not open any emails, just delete them unopened and do not add anyone to your skype account male or female. If it's a scammer, they will get the message that you are not playing the game and will not pay, then they will move on.
