FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — A Suwanee woman reported an online fraud attempt Aug. 23 involving a fake LinkedIn account.

The victim told deputies she applied for a job and thought she was communicating with a recruiter named “Cynthia Yaekle.” She said she provided Yaekle personal information through the virtual job site. She realized the account was fake when the supposed recruiter asked her to provide personal information on a different site outside of LinkedIn.

The victim also reported the alleged fraud to the Federal Trade Commission, according to deputies.
