Recruiter: "I *love* your LinkedIn profile!"

Me: "I don't have a LinkedIn profile."

Recruiter:

Follow

I formerly had a LinkedIn profile but deleted it last year due to lack of use. Clearly this recruiter's company is storing copies of profiles, because they knew specific things about my profile.

@ThreddyTheTrex That is kind of creepy. Are you sure all your information got deleted by deleting you account? I could check if I'm able to find you

@julloyart The recruiter confirmed that they store LinkedIn profiles in their internal recruiting system, so I think that's where they were viewing my data. When I search for my name I don't see anything. I think the deletion was successful.

@ThreddyTheTrex That is then still very creepy by the firm/recruiter.
