Sometimes a misleading message isn’t the worst part of a Linked In scam.In some cases, it’s connecting with another user who you might not know.Jennifer Jones, a partner at Social Media Today, explains how she came across one such scam when she was contacted by “Jonathan Salisbury,” who claimed he worked for the Royal Bank of Scotland as a Senior Relationship Manager in Corporate Banking.The scam message informed Jennifer that she had inherited millions of dollars from a deceased relative and requested that she contact “Jonathan” via email if she were interested in claiming the money.
