A great "Heads up" from Nancy Golliday, of First Coast Designs. Beware of clicking on any link in an e-mail that is in any way suspicious!
I received an email notification this morning that someone sent me a message from what looked like Linkedin. The email ended in "linkedin.com" so I thought it was safe...I clicked on the link to view the message and my AVG blocked a threat.
If any of you receive an email notification that someone sent you a message on Linkedin, you're best off just logging into your Linkedin account to view the message - don't click the link within your email. And, if it wasn't really from Linkedin, there will be no message and you'll know you did the right thing by "not" clicking directly from your email.
It's sad though...that I now can't trust any messages coming from Linkedin because even though the email ends in "linkedin.com" I'm not going to risk getting a virus.
Heed my warning!!! Don't click on any email notifications from Linkedin - just log directly into your account to see if there really "is" a message from someone.
I'm not sure if the email notifications of someone wanting to connect can be trusted.
