After finding his name, cell phone number and email on the LinkedIn website without his permission, a Cranberry man has filed suit against the business social networking company in the hopes of learning who set up the fake account in his name.
According to the lawsuit, Senft discovered the LinkedIn account, which he didn’t authorize, in October. Court documents said Senft also is “careful to keep his personal contact information private,” the Post-Gazette reported.
The lawsuit said LinkedIn Corp. has taken down the site, but won‘t turn over the identity of its creator without a court order, the Pittsburgh Tribune Review reports.
Senft’s lawyer, Jay D. Marinstein, declined comment to the Post-Gazette on the lawsuit.
