I just got an email from firstname.lastname@example.org
but my system said that it couldn't verify that it actually was from LinkedIn. It read as follows:
Can’t remember your LinkedIn password? No problem - it happens.
Please use this link to reset your password within the next 1 day:
Then sign in to LinkedIn with your new password and the email address where you received this message.
Thanks for using LinkedIn!"
And yes, it did include links. Be careful, people!
I got the same email yesterday, except that the email address (the "To" part) and the greeting "Hi xxxx" part was not my name but someone I don't even know.
By the way, I received another email from LinkedIn today, which is similar to what Bernhard mentioned above, asking for acceptance of adding to one's professional network. The similarity between the two emails is that the "To" part is not my email address. When I clicked on "View invitation from XXXXX" (I always press this button before accepting or ignoring the message to see what kind of a person the sender is), the browser jumped to a page where it said "Do not open this page since there is a high probability of phishing and spyware" in Japanese.
It seems that these scammers (?) are getting cleverer and cleverer.
