Be Very Very careful when using the LinkedIn website - it is one the favorite internet places for identify theives to steal your identity - your work history can be used to "fill in the blanks" on you. Sometimes your former co-workers are criminals or they are (unknowingly) related to identity theifs, and these folks have access to your former co-worker's computer and probably their Linked In account. It's a good networking tool (I have used it in the past), but Linkedin has numerous privacy and user security issues.
