I have Google and Yahoo alerts set up for my company which has a unique name (Zencos) in order to track where we appear in the internet/web/blogs, etc. I reviewed my recent alerts and found someone that claimed to be the president of our company, however no one in the company knows who this person is.

Therefore I wanted to contact this person to let them know of the infringement of our company name but I don’t have a business account with LinkedIn. I also could not find anyplace to flag this and let LinkedIn know that someone is “poaching” our corporate identity.

I’m in the process of contacting LinkedIn to let them know we want this person to not use our company name but will have to dig into the web site to find out proper process to do so. More to follow…
