LinkedIn spam /


Here’s a very convincing looking LinkedIn spam:

From: [email protected] [mailto:[email protected]] On Behalf Of LinkedIn Email Confirmation
Sent: 20 April 2012 09:54
Subject: Please confirm your email address

Click here to confirm your email address.
If the above link does not work, you can paste the following address into your browser:
You will be asked to log into your account to confirm this email address. Be sure to log in with your current primary email address.
We ask you to confirm your email address before sending invitations or requesting contacts at LinkedIn. You can have several email addresses, but one will need to be confirmed at all times to use the system.
If you have more than one email address, you can choose one to be your primary email address. This is the address you will log in with, and the address to which we will deliver all email messages regarding invitations and requests, and other system mail.
Thank you for using LinkedIn!

There are three hyperlinks in the message, two of them are to LinkedIn and one of them is to a fake pharma site on on in Poland.

Personally, I hate LinkedIn emails. Blocking everything that appears to be from will not have any adverse impact on your life.
