Don't be fooled by the recent wave of LinkedIn emails saying you have been deactivated (or anything else). This week I am seeing a lot of fake emails saying they are from LinkedIn, but they are just phishing for your login info.

I know many who have created a LinkedIn account, but then never use it. So, they can easily believe a message that says something about their activity.

This week it's LinkedIn, next it could be Twitter, Yelp, YouTube, AOL. 

Please try to show that you are smarter than the spammers think you are. They think you will just click anything that is sent to you. They may make the message look authentic to fool you, but you are smarter than that, right?

Right?
