Companies selling details...
Out of the 10 new emails this morning, one has got me a bit concerned.
Apparently, Becky McCartney "would like to add [me] to [her] professional network on LinkedIn"
Firstly... Who the [censored] are you? and HOW THE BEJEZUS DID YOU GET MY WORK EMAIL?!
Apparently she works for Ideonic and Skull Monkey, 2 companies I've never heard of until today.
Ideonic is a game company [I think... their site looks good but has NO information] so I wouldn't have approched them for anything. Skull Monkey appears to be her freelance business... And a quick search of the BETT site for them has 0 results, meaning there's very little chance I got drive-by scanned. [Though, Edugeek isn't on there either...]
But, even if they were at BETT... Why would you randomly send LinkedIn invites to someone you don't know?
Am I right in being wary of this or am I just overthinking it?
