HOW TO REPORT AN EMAIL RECEIVED INTO YOUR LINKEDIN INBOX AS SPAM

  1.  Open the email and click on the button ‘Report Spam’; When a LinkedIn user receives a number (I think it’s currently 5, I think) of ‘Report Spam’ confirmations they will be reprimanded (currently their account is suspended).
  2.  ‘Forward’ the offending email directly to abuse@Linkedin.com
