I've been getting notifications from LinkedIn now and then, trying to connect me with people I know or knew who are now on LinkedIn.
I've ignored them, as I'm getting out of the industry I've been involved with, and want to separate myself from it.

Today I got an email that appeared to have come from LinkedIn with the header "You have message from Lesley Green".
It goes on to say "Leslie Green sent you personal message".

I could be wrong, but it sounds to me like both sentences were written by someone whose native tongue was not English.

I don't know anyone named Leslie Green, but if I did, I'd damn sure check with him or her to see if that email was legitimate before clicking on any links in it.

I may forward it to LinkedIn, let them check it out.

I suggest marking it Junk, then going to Junk file area and actually deleting it.

On the MacBook a file begins to build of those emails you do not want. After a few times of the above deletion, that company will be automatically transferred to Junk for a mass deletion.

I comb through the Junk file each day to make sure nothing of value is in it then do a mass delete.

After a while big clumps of repeated named emails get grouped together alphabetically and it is extremely easy to eyeball through them in just seconds and delete.

You can also auto-delete but I like to check it first.
Mac makes it easy.


PS: Just to keep this post legal, I got the XB9S, XB12X and 1125R all NC state inspected in a day. Had been too busy to ride. Got on the 1125R.... That thing is frightenlingly fast when you have not ridden it for a few months. The hair is still standing on the back of my neck!! Holloween Scary too!!

It is hard these days to determine what is legit and what is not. If in doubt, don't click it. If it is something you want to investigate (like it claims it is your bank), then open a new browser window and type in their address manually.

I know I get LinkedIn requests all the time, I have no interest in it so regardless of it being a potential phishing attempt I never clicked them.
