Five (now Six) CEOs, et. al. - UPDATED 2/25

CEOs at these companies sent me connection requests today. Smelling a rat, I simply checked out the company's employee profiles on LinkedIn and discovered multiple CEOs on staff. Wow - that's some retained search bill! has 5 6 CEOs; click here to find out why.

Dear Lord, now it's with 4 of them: click here.

Received some Saturday morning LinkedIn love from "JOHN ROBERT", an "executive officer at invesment company" in the UAE, who goes by the name Barry McMillan when working for Ameriprise). So far, 167 chumps have accepted his connection request.

Even better was connection request from the CEO of the Ibori Company, Nkoyo Ibori. I was incredibly surprised to learn that the profile used the picture of the mistress of the formerly incarcerated Governor of the Delta State in Nigeria, James Ibori.

Somehow, it makes sense mentioning fake LinkedIn profiles, mistresses and Nigeria all in the same sentence. 

I'll update as I receive more CEO connection requests via LinkedIn.

2/25 I'm shaking my head and chuckling at the same time over this one.

I'm always suspicious when I get "any" connection request from a CEO or any C-level anything. So many spammers on that site lately.
