YES YES YES!!!
I get the occasional connection request and when I look at their profile if I suspect them to be a scammer, I block them.
Well, I have a good story here.
Not sure how long ago this person linked up with me. But today I get this in my personal email:
So I looked at my Linkedin connections to see if I was connected. I wasn't. So i got curious but just blocked and deleted the email. (Before I did that I copied this info in case I was going to share it with you all). I wondered how he got my email address if we aren't connected on Linkedin. To see contact info you have to be connected.
A few minutes later on Linkedin, I get a private message from someone, but it is not this guy. See the conversation below.
So when she asked if I got her email, I put 2 and 2 together. And as you can see she/he never responded back to me. So I blocked this person on Linkedin. (Since she and I were connected, she had access to get my email address).
Below is her profile on Linkedin:
Crazy! Crazy! Crazy!
So beware on Linkedin!
