New LinkedIn E-Mail Scam

LinkedIn Scam

Hi all, there is an e-mail scam doing the rounds. The message is an invite from some random person you won’t know with a link (how original). If you get such a message don’t use the link, check your LinkedIn account as if it’s a legit request it will be there waiting for approval.

Even if it is legit, make sure you vet all invite requests carefully. I have had several dodgy requests from what I believe to be bogus profiles who are likely up to no good. LinkedIn is about the quality of your contacts not the quantity.

Stay safe and Happy / Safe 4th of July.
