I was invited to sign up for LinkedIn years ago by a friend, never did a profile except a job title. What made me check is that I just got an e-mail from linkedIn asking if I know this list of people that I might want to add. What is upsetting is that the people listed are old clients of mine from around the country. How could LinkedIn have gotten their names associated with me? I only have 3 "connections" and they're not clients, nor are they co-workers. My profile is set up as "anonymous", the only thing linking me to this odd assortment of people would have been confidential work e-mails. But I didn't list my work e-mail with LinkedIn, just my company name. My work e-mail is my name and company. Could LinkedIn have hacked into my work e-mail and gotten a list of my clients? I don't have anyone from work as a connection. There is nothing that would link me to these people except confidential work e-mail. There is no possibility of "mutual friends" like FB suggestions. This is really not good. Any thoughts?
