Here is an email i recieved today via linked in. I have removed the name for obvious reasons. Worth a read to see how NOT to meet, like, trust...
I would like to offer you the choice to remove yourself from my linked in connections.
My use of linked in is purely professional and as such if you are not interested in purchasing a service or product to improve the quality of your life from my business**** further details can be found at www***.com then I have nothing to offer you and suggest we terminate our professional association.
If on the other hand you know you have something that I may wish to purchase then here's your chance to sell it to me.
Professionally and personally you will find out what my needs are from my site or linked in profile. Obviously I will not buy into services that I am capable of doing for myself and will let you know and asked to be removed from your list of contacts.
Please reply to this email with your decision or pitch. I promise if there is a no thanks then you will be removed forthwith and no one will have access to your contact details from me.
Thank you for your time and if we are to remain connected then I hope it is a long and profitable relationship for the both of us.
I couldnt find you anyway and i will only add you if you take out a mortgage or take out a life insurance policy! talking of which there is a special £50 voucher scheme going at the moment if you do take one out or change your existing. If not then our 'relationship' ends here....
