Scraped data of 500 million LinkedIn profiles up for sale online

Around 500 million profiles on LinkedIn have had their profiles scraped for data, which is now being sold online on a popular platform. The actor(s) behind the scraping are looking for a four-digit price in exchange for the data, which contains LinkedIn IDs, full names, phone numbers, email addresses, etc. The data, however, doesn’t contain sensitive information, like social security numbers.
