I fly through DFW a lot and some DFW security officer sent me a connection request on LinkedIn. No idea who he is. Should I be creeped out?

So much groupthink in this thread. All of you are jumping to the same conclusion based on absolutely nothing. How does anyone here know 1) op ever encountered this person in DFW airport 2) the person got Ops name from the airport? Without knowing 1 or 2 how in world can you guys just jump to such a conclusion? Aren’t you guys consultants that work on evidence and data not gut feelings?

Only you can answer this. I'm an extremely outgoing and friendly person and have developed some true friendships with staff like baristas, waiters and waitresses, hotel staff. If you just were a bit friendly but didn't share your name or work or anything with him and he pulled your information from checking your ID then that is wrong and he should be reported. If you and him have a repoire and chat about stuff and are friendly you could let it slide. Sounds like the former based on what you've said and I would report him.

That is actually quite scary that he would remember your name and then go find you. Some people might think that is endearing or a compliment. I think it sounds like a stalker

I would go so far as to say reportable! Unless you chatted and shared your PII, this is a misuse of data

Yes. Straight creep status.

Agreed that this is likely reportable as it sounds like a huge misuse of pii and likely something they are told not to do because it’s an invasion of privacy/ misuse of their position

Yes

Hmmm yeah that’s pretty sketchy

I just reread OP’s post. What makes us think that the security guy remembered Ops name and then looked it up. What if there is a more innocent answer, e.g., common connection, a random invite, etc.

I think those of you that think good looking = not creepy should look at the history of serial killers before you make that statement. I believe that is how some of them convinced their victims they were safe. Looks do not indicate safety
