LinkedIn Business Invitation Scam

Scammers are sending out fake "LinkedIn Business Invitation" emails like the one below, to trick potential victims into clicking on the links in them. The links in the fake and phishing emails go a fake LinkedIn website that will ask visitors to sign-in into order to confirm their IDs. But, any attempt to sign-in will result in the potential victims' LinkedIn account credentials being sent to the cyber thieves behind the fake email.
