I don’t think this is a real job offer via LinkedIn

Hello, Terry, whatever your email address is. I don’t think you really have a job offer for me. For one thing, if you really connected via LinkedIn, you’d have messaged me through the service. For another, email addresses often match names. For another… well, that’s enough.

Don’t reply to messages like this. Just delete them.
