LinkedIn Makeover Scam?

LinkedIn Makeover SCAM

I just received an email from a professional interested in my LinkedIn Profile Optimization services. She was concerned about doing business over the Web. I can understand her online security concern. Here is her question and how I responded:

Hi Donna,

I really would like to have you optimize my LinkedIn profile but my only concern is the payment side. You have a really nice site and I would love, love if you could deliver. I am just concerned about scams. How could we work through that? I am scared to pay upfront.


Hi Jessica!

I want you to feel comfortable working with me! If you would like to speak to me directly, please give me a call. I’d be happy to talk to you in person.

You can also visit my LinkedIn profile:

Please note the number of recommendations that I have listed.

You can also visit my LinkedIn Company page:

There are also a number of recommendations listed there that you can read.

You can also see that I have a book available on

Hopefully this presence and the testimonials from my customers will help allay your fears.

I would love to work with you. 🙂


I am so glad Jessica reached out. I want my potential clients to feel safe working with me. That’s one of the reasons why I have my phone number front and center on my Website. So many people are surprised when I pick up the phone. Yes, I am a real person! When you work with me, you are working with ME! I don’t outsource nor do I give you some recorded program. If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call me!

I made some slight tweaks to her email and my response for SEO purposes. The gist of the exchange didn’t change.
