Easiest way to avoid any of this is to avoid LinkedIn. I am there for some reason I can't remember but I have no use for it.

I get emails almost every day through any of my accounts that contain suspicious attachments. "Why was I billed for this- invoice attached" etc. Best advice is to delete anything with an attachment or link period. You can't even trust authentic looking emails from your bank. I've received some from banks I don't even do business with requiring that I have to update my personal information.
