www.youracclaim.com – now that’s dodgey

I, like many of the readers of this blog, have been getting messages constantly from “www.youracclaim.com” to get “badges” from the Microsoft exams they have sat over the past years.

I have ignored these up until recently, but when I went to update my linkedin profile, to include some recent university results, and thought “there must be an easy way to add my Microsoft certs, ill try this youracclaim.com thingy…. its from pearsonvue – how dodgey could it be?”

My question was soon answered with this (below) when trying to link my newly created “youracclaim.com” account and linkedin.

 

Post updates, make comments and like posts as me… are you fucking serious?!!?! Does anyone fall for that? (rhetorical question – someone must….)
