Who is Emogene Floyd? LinkedIn intelligence gatherer? Russians? Chinese? Iranians?

Recently saw where a person decided to impersonate an employee of the company on LinkedIn, but something did not quite add up when the name was cross-referenced internally.  Some due diligence located a deceased person whose obituary photo had been usurped for the fake LinkedIn account.  Smart enough not to take the bait on my contact request, but lots of interesting log entries hitting this site without a valid vhost.   Lesson to be learned by the folks who accepted the contact requests, validate a supposed co-worker is actually an employee or contractor before accepting the request.  Trust, but verify, when using social media.
