The best way to get your problem resolved is to tap the button below to start calling LinkedIn. We will check on you later to see if it's fixed or needs to be escalated.
If time is of the essence or you are lost, we partner with a BBB-accredited US-based company that has live experts you can chat with about issues like this for roughly $20-45. Chat now with an expert.
Before contacting them, items GetHuman731026 may need:
Username, Email on Account, Phone Number, and Name of Account Holder
Top Tip from another customer
If your email and password are changed on the account then there is no way to recover the account. This company has a very strict policy with recovering accounts and if anything is different then you cannot recover the account. You must have the original email or phone number on the account.
The issue in GetHuman731026's own words
My account was apparently hacked. I reached out to customer service who responded that they placed a temporary restriction because they suspected a problem. I then receieved a response to complete a LinkedIn Member Identity Verification form to have account recovered. I completed this form and account was restored. It appears as though each of my contacts received an auto generated message suposedly signed by me from Field Agent Inc. about a part time job with a Link to register. It is some type of spam (scam) i assume to get peoples personal information. I would like to know how they obtained my email address and were able to get into my account? I also am curious if it will continue to send out these auto generated emails that appear as though they are from me. I have a screenshot of the auto generated message if that would help.
