I got this email!
It wasn’t an email that I was expecting with where I worked as a subject. It wasn’t even something that I would want. My 3 months are approaching my probationary ending of my 90 days. So when I got this email, I thought this was something from a friend of mine at work. I was not sure what It was but it seemed like it was a referral service. It however wasn’t I was expecting. So I went about looking at what people said about Referralkey.com. I didn’t expect so many people to talk about it so badly. Every review I read is that it wasn’t as good as it seemed.
Linkedin Leak our emails!
It seemed there is a way to find out if an email address is actually valid according to some sources. All they would need to do is try the email address and if it comes back with a person then they have another way to validate an email address. What was really strange about this is that it didn’t really come from Linkedin. It came from the referral site, with the email and not with some linkedin!
Referral Key swipes our email address!
Looks to be some sneaky underhanded way to spam people with the hopes that they can refer people and thus you make some money on the side. I wasn’t really thrilled with how they harvested my email address and I will be going to Linkedin and changing how people can retrieve my email address or even know if they can even view that. This should’ve been fixed a few months ago but I guess LinkedIn thought it was an unimportant bug. I’m saying this might make me want to close out my account from them. I haven’t decided all the way but this is something that I will be a constant reminder about them.
