How not to be duped by fake HR recruiters in Linkedin?

Recently a recruiter at linkedin approached me. It was about an opportunity matching with my “impressive background” as in his words. Ah! How nice!


He messaged that he was looking to hire someone with my background! When I responded, he further showed his interests to have a conversation with me and gave me a brief description about his company. And requested for my phone number.


I was not as stupid as he expected to give my number!


I searched for his background in linkedin. To my surprise, it was a blank page with just a profile name and not any activities . Nothing more. Likewise the company he referred too didn’t have any professional appearance on linkedin and I couldn’t trace that company from google too. I felt some anomalies at this stage. So I just asked him to pass me the webpage link. As expected no further responses! He disappeared.
