Just be careful if it came via an email, spoof Linkedin emails are often used by scammers Jan. I got one last week.

I have been in LinkedIn for quite a few years, good when I was in business for networking, not of use now I am retired.


ray.

Just watching a shifty looking geezer in the library searching intently through the 'S' section of the dictionary, he's stopped now.

I think he's up to something. . .. . . ray......

This is a Business LinkedIn Ray, he has probably sent the invite to all his email contacts.

I joined it years ago. Apart from finding a load of lost ex work colleagues (Some of which would have been better staying lost) I never got anything out of it. Its like those ghastly network breakfast meetings, everyone is after the same thing.

I am on there, but you do get the weirdest people asking to connect, gravestone makers for example

Most are people looking to sell things to you, so I keep my contacts to a very few, usually people who know me.

Begs the question: if they know me already, why connect on Linkedin?
