It seems the "Nigerian" type scammers are using LinkedIN to , well, scam you of your money.

I received this invitation from this guy below. Don't think I knew anyone from Taiwan and the request to connect sounded very suspicious.

LinkedIn has always given me 1000 reasons why I should be connected to strangers.

In less than 24 hours, I received an email from "Su Hwa" who wasn't actually Su Hwa. 


Su Hwa has sent you a message.
Date: 8/14/2012
Subject: Attn Mr. Aaron
I am Mr. Tien Chai, I write briefly to call for your partnership in a 25 Million USD transaction, if interested contact me via my private email below with your full contact information and your email contact that you use regularly for better communication, i cannot say much from you due to the confidentiality of the partnership.

From Taiwan 

Of course I reported this email as spam, but was quit disappointed that scammers have infiltrated LinkedIn.
