LinkedIn “Account Inactivity” Email Targets Users

By June 18, 2013October 13th, 2021Blog


Another fake LinkedIn email has been circulating – this time, informing you that your account has been blocked due to inactivity. It asks that you “click here” to confirm your email address and to ensure “your online services with LinkedIn will no longer be interrupted”. The conclusion of the message requests that you confirm your address prior to sending invitations or requesting contacts at LinkedIn and thanks you for using the social site, signed “The LinkedIn Team”.

If you click the link, the redirected page has you choose your webmail provider and provide your login information. It’s important to note that LinkedIn will never ask for your email credentials. Even in the case of a lost password, the site will only ask for your email address, then send a message to said address allowing you to reset your password.
