๐ŸŽฏ Scams on LinkedIn: Photographers, Paid Media, and Creators... You Are Being Targeted! ๐Ÿ’ผ Scammers ๐Ÿ‘ฅ are becoming increasingly sophisticated, and LinkedIn is one of their favourite hunting grounds. They create fake profiles and exploit our need for connections ๐Ÿค, business opportunities ๐Ÿ’ผ, and job offers ๐Ÿ‘ทโ€โ™€๏ธ Scammers usually target photographers ๐Ÿ“ธ, creators ๐ŸŽจ, and paid media experts ๐Ÿ“ฐ as these professions often require showcasing work and collaborations, making them vulnerable to these scams. But keep calm... weโ€™re here with some protective armor. ๐Ÿ›ก 1. Phishing Links ๐ŸŽฃ: Scammers often use persuasive language to lure you into clicking on embedded links. Our advice? Don't. Instead, copy the link and paste it into a text file ๐Ÿ“ to see where it leads without actually going there. Stay vigilant, even if the link looks legitimate. 2. Navigating Safely โ›ต: When someone provides a suspicious website or link ๐Ÿ•ธ, navigate there safely. Use a new window or a private/incognito one ๐Ÿ•ถ to prevent any potential hacking attempts. 3. Unsolicited Job Offers ๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ’ป: As exciting as unexpected job offers can be ๐Ÿš€, they can also be a disguise for scams. Be suspicious of offers from connections you've never interacted with, especially if they're overseas. Always research ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ the company and the person contacting you. Stay smart. Stay secure. ๐Ÿ’ช Remember, a genuine connection ๐Ÿค or opportunity wonโ€™t rush you into clicking an obscure link, share confidential information or demand immediate decisions. When in doubt, take time to investigate ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ or simplyโ€ฆ just ignore it! Let's make LinkedIn safer, one connection at a time. ๐Ÿ›ก๐Ÿ’ผ๐ŸŒ #staysafe #cybersecurity #onlinejobs #linkedin #scams
