Linkedin Scam Warning

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Coastal Properties

Received this in my e-mail, so I know I'm not the only one.  With Facebook doing their updates, as well as other companies, it seemed logical that Linkedin would also.  They have often asked me to update my email address right?  Well if you do receive something that looks like this, it's not from Linkedin:

Thanks for the warning. I get the same things from my email account and I just delete them all. I'll probably delete a real warning one of these days, but oh well!

Thanks for the headsup, Karen. I typically ignore these kinds of messages and never click through "just in case."

Well I figured not everyone is as savvy as we are and will click through unknowingly.  So I thought I'd share.  It can easily slip through with all the official updates coming through as well.
