I think you can politely say that as a rule you don't refer people if you're not familiar with their work personally already.

Should refer him/her since linkedin is networking platform and people looks for opportuities and try to connect for same, some random guy might help you in future, thats how professional networking works.

I’m not currently looking for a change (I left for industry in 2020 and really like my job). When recruiters message me on LinkedIn I reply to them because you never know when I’ll be open in the future and I don’t want to burn bridges. This one recruiter messaged me about 6 weeks ago for an assistant controller position and I replied back saying I’m currently happy with my job and am a VP of Accounting so wouldn’t be interested in an assistant controller role. He has reached out every 2 weeks
