Fake LinkedIn "Important Profile Changes" Alert

This email attempts to trick you into clicking on a link. It purports to be from LinkedIn, and it looks very realistic (the graphics are all exactly like those in real LinkedIn messages, and there are no apparent errors in grammar or style). But the link, whose address is http://199.47.149.2/~sunnycha/probabilities.html, does not point to a LinkedIn address (it does not even point to a named server, but just an IP address!). This email should be regarded as SPAM and deleted.
