CNBC reports some testimonies. One victim was contacted by an alleged manager of a company who advised her to invest $ 400 through He then increased the amount and moved the money to a site run by the scammer, losing everything (almost $ 290,000). LinkedIn has published an official blog post to confirm an increase in fraudulent activity in the past few months.
