Foolish LinkedIn member

LinkedIn is filled with lots of people who not only don’t know how to use LinkedIn, but also won’t use it properly. Please don’t be that person.

Here is the text of the LinkedIn messaging I had with this SPAM/FAKE LinkedIn account.

After the last message I reported the profile as inappropriate.

That’s fabulous Anita.
I’m looking for a dim witted & foolish person to scrape mud off the bottom of my shoes. Apparently I found him/her.
When can you get started?

As soon as you can, get over here. I need you to sweep the driveway, wash the car & feed my alligators. Bring your gloves, there may be briars in the back woods that need to be cut back.
Looking forward to it – Fool

The engagement ended here. I reported the LinkedIn member as SPAMMER

Update – as of 9/22/18 this profile still exists on LinkedIn.
