…, congratulations! You have one of the top 5% most viewed LinkedIn profiles for 2012! – THIS IS NOT A SCAM!!!

As E-Crime Expert received many emails regarding this message sent from LinkedInDan, congratulations! You have one of the top 5% most viewed LinkedIn profiles for 2012!” and reported it as a scam, I would like to clarify and let my readers know, that this is not actually a scam! I checked with LinkedIn and this message is part of their 200 million members campaign to thank to their members for helping LinkedIn reach this great milestone.

Also, if you click through the email, it takes you to a page which shows a message from their Senior Vice President of Products and User Experience on their site. E-Crime Expert checked the link and there is nothing wrong with it, nor there is any sign of hacking or scam.

LinkedIn confirmed that they are legitimately using these two email addresses:

1. linkedin@e.linkedin.com

2. donotreply@e.linkedin.com

Message reply from LinkedIn:
