    I landed here actually after being attacked. I was wondering why wouldn't LinkedIn announce such information publicly and did multiple researches to be here. Right now I received the exact same letter word by word. The scariest thing about the scammer is that he has some LinkedIn looking alike credentials.

    What happens to the person who has already sent his or her account details to those thieves. Is the person to close down such accounts so as not to be defrauded?

    • October 31, 2019 at 2:33 PM by info

      No, the thieves cannot defraud you that way, unless they have your account credentials(username and password).
