The issue in GetHuman-emercer's own words
Hi,**I was outraged to find out that my profile still comes up when people google my name.*I distinctly remember closing the account years ago.**Just now, I tried to log in, to no avail. None of the emails I would have used are recognised, nor my telephone number. **In order for me to verify my identity I need my email, but if you don't recognise any of them - how can I can do it?*It is a complete nightmare.**This is the link to my profile:*https:**uk.linkedin.com*in*liza-mercer-**b*******Please tell me what to do. *I do not want anything to do with LinkedIn or similar sites.*I utterly regret setting this profile in the first place.***Thank you,*Liza Mercer

GetHuman-emercer did not yet indicate what LinkedIn should do to make this right.

How GetHuman-emercer fixed the problem
I actually tried again with another email address and managed to change password and get in and eventually close the account. Still, I do not know why it resurfaced after I closed it a while ago. So, here is hoping it is now closed for good. thank you
