    Default Linkedin Profile Copied

    Someone who I am not connected to on LinkedIn, although is working in the same domain/skillset as me, has copied parts of my job roles profile onto theirs word for word

    I feel a bit of a *nob asking them to change this, so suggestions on to deal with this greatly welcomed...

    Why would you feel like a nob? If you can prove they copied you then (a) ask them to amend and (b) see if there's a way to report it to LinkedIn as a copycat account or such like.

    Either that or tell us who it is and we can all stalk the person?

    If people on here know who you are get them ALL to endorse you for Business Storytelling, Online Marketing or something else to do with having good writing skills.

    Make sure you tell them exactly what to endorse you for, and get a few of them to comment about your CV.

    Meanwhile let us stalk them...

    They are a 3rd line connection and their profile came up which I just happened to have a look at.
