LinkedIn Security Notice – “Account Blocked” Phishing Email Alert

It’s been brought to our attention that phishing emails (malicious emails where a user tries to get you to click a legitimate looking link that takes you to a website disguised as a familiar entity (ie. LinkedIn.com) in order to steal your login information/ personal data) are making the rounds.

LinkedIn Phishing Scam Email Details

If you get an email from “alerts@linkedin.com” entitled LinkedIn Security Notice that contains the LinkedIn logo and the following text:

Your LinkedIn Account has been blocked.
To remove the restrictions please
Follow this link
Thank you for using LinkedIn!

Delete the email and do not click the “follow this link” text, as it does not lead to LinkedIn.com. Instead, it leads to a scammer’s website disguised as LinkedIn that will attempt to con you into offering your login details and other personal information.
