Beware of This Kind of LinkedIn Frauds

I received today a Linkedin message that is a bit special. The guy tells me that he has a business opportunity to share with me. He said he would give more details if I contact him through my personal email.

Out of curiosity (and a bit of greed), I contacted him:

linkedin-fraud-keyboardbanger2

He quickly replied with a long email with a story about a deal and an oil company:

linkedin-fraud-keyboardbanger3

I knew this was a fraud because :

  • first, the initial transaction is clearly a fraud,
  • second, who on Earth would transfer USD 4.2 million to a bank account of a stranger? Only Rockerfeller would do that!

So I reported his profile on Linkedin, hoping to hunt him down and send him to jail:
