Beware Of Linkedin Scams


You know, social media have become the last fronteer of spam and and scam. Yesterday I received a strange message from an unkown (i.e. non-existant, at least when I checked) LinkedIn Profile, inviting me to message my email address for a purpotred “undervalued $tock bid”. In this hard times the perpsective of easy money sounds appealing but…

…Always remember that LinkedIn is particularly attractive for cybercrookers since contacts have a bigger level of trust and confidence and the victims are lead to  lower the barreers of mistrust (the human firewall).

Anyway, in case of suspect messages from LinkedIn always check the LinkedIn Checkbox (in this case, needless to say, the message was not listed, nor was the linkedin profile existant).
