Watch out for ‘confirm your email address’ LinkedIn phishing scam 

Thank you to SCC’s trading Standards team for this:

Fraudsters are purporting to be from the businesses social network LinkedIn claiming your account has been blocked due to inactivity and, to restore access; you are required to click a link to confirm your email address 
The scam emails are not from LinkedIn and are designed to harvest you login details. You should always be wary of urgent requests to click on links from emails.
