I got spammed on LinkedIn.
There wasn’t anyway to report the message. So I replied telling the sender that it was an inappropriate. My exact response was:
This type of spam is incredibly inappropriate for LinkedIn.
Please don’t ever mail me this kind of message again.
His heated response, basically telling me he was offended that I was so ungrateful for the incredible opportunity he’d offered. Check out his last paragraph:
If you’re so self-righteous that you can “do business” then feel free to remove me from your contact list. Don’t be such a priss. If you’re not interested then just archive the message, don’t snivel about it.
My email may have been out of line. I might have been better saying something like “I’m am confused by this use of LinkedIn. Please don’t include me on this list.”
But the way to win over me if I screw up is not by calling me names. (I’m not even sure what he means by “do business.”)
Have any of you received blind, spam-like email on LinkedIn?
