The issue in GetHuman2949166's own words
You obtained "contacts" information from either my phone or my computer. I would never allow this intentionally. Is it possible I inadvertently clicked something that gave you wide open access, yes, but only by mistake. I would never intentionally agree to this, and I am as of today, *********, requesting you remove them immediately. I can see evidence of LinkedIn using my contact list every time I'm asked to look over a list of possible new connectins. **I understand why LinkedIn wants everyone's email contact list, it's obviously to grow your network. And I am in no way accusing LinkedIn of breaking in and stealing my data. However you are using my contact list, and I don't want you to use it, and I've never purposely given you permission to use it. **There are names and contacts in my list that are personal and possibly even invalid email addresses, and should not be on your network. Example, my deceased mother, my granddaughter. I do not expect you to remove all contact names you are using that came from my system, but I do expect you to remove all contact names and email addresses that came from my system and they have no activity associated with them. **Please let know how to proceed. I'm sure your want to rectify this inadvertent user of my personal information as soon as possible. I appreciate your immediate attention to this matter. **Thank you, *Danny Wall ***-***-****
