The issue in GetHuman-nmartinm's own words
My LinkedIn account appears to have been hacked and a scam message sent to all of my contacts asking them to download an attachment. Many of my contacts at LinkedIn sent me messages asking if I had sent them that message and attachment. As I was responding and also sending messages to my list of LinkedIn contacts that I had not sent any message asking for an attachment to be downloaded, and that message should be deleted, my LinkedIn profile suddeny cut out. When I tried to log back into the account and my profile to continue alerting my contacts about the hack, the LinkedIn site advised me that the email address I use to login to LinkedIn is not known by LinkedIn. I do not wish to lose my LinkedIn profile nor all my contacts and am asking your technical department if they can and will retrieve my account to enable me to sign in. Some of my contacts have already indicated that my profile is no longer available at LinkedIn. Most frustrating. My profile is “ Neil McDermott, Strategy and Corporate Finance Advisory, Sydney Australia”. My email address I use to login is NMartinMcD@aol.com. I recently changed my login password from the previous one I used. My previous **saTUrn**. My new one **CimSoC**.*Are you able to help me recover and login to my account please ? I value my LinkedIn account and my contacts very much, and your help will be much appreciated.*Should you wish to confirm I am genuine you may contact me at my aol email address as above, alternatively, I have a backup email NeilMartinMcD@gmail.com, or you may contact me via my mobile..... *** *** *** ***, to confirm it is actually me, and to advise me how to retrieve and log back into my LinkedIn account.*I look forward to your early response, as since my account cutout when I was messaging contacts advising the email they had received was a scam, not all of them have yet received my advice re this.*Thank you and regards.
