I am not even on LinkedIn, and yet I received two strange messages yesterday and today. One message says for me to stop sending spam messages for my business. As I said, I am not even a member of LinkedIn. Do you suppose someone I know, who has my email, has been affected by malware, and their contacts are being used fictiously? How do I make this stop?
Hi, Yes I've received a similar e-mail today and previously 2 others last week. These are spam e-mails designed to get you to follow a link to a fraudulent site that can load malware onto your machine in order to steal bank IDs and passwords. Don't click on any link in the e-mail just delete it straight away.
