It’s a trap! November 2, 2012Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff, TGIF.
If you receive an e-mail called “LinkedIn new messages” do not click on the link(s). It’s linked to a malicious website. This applies to any e-mail from an unknown source. I must have not drank enough coffee yet today, because I absentmindedly clicked on one of its links (not even realizing that it wasn’t sent to the e-mail I use for LinkedIn!). Luckily my anti-virus protection stopped it in its tracks. I just knew I had a couple pending messages in LinkedIn, because I had just accepted a colleague’s LinkedIn request (hi, Tom!) about 15 minutes before. So think before you click!
