If you see a message in your email from “LinkedIn Email Confirmation” and with the subject line “Please confirm your email address,” it could very well be a fraud.
That old LinkedIn phishing scheme is back again. I got three identical emails within 90 minutes this morning. Notice the “From” line in the header below. The other two emails were sent from email@example.com and from firstname.lastname@example.org.
While reading LinkedIn’s Account Security & Privacy Best Practices, I noticed that it cautions against including your physical address, email address and phone number in your profile. My profile included my email address and phone number until I deleted them a few minutes ago. That could be why I received the email.
