Just ignore it.  Don’t make any contact with him at all.

Asking to connect on Linkedn isn’t a big deal.  Skip the letter and ignore him.

Agreed- skip the letter (really not worth your time) and ignore the linked in  request

Agree with all of the other PP. 

You’re giving this person too much thought!

The letter isn’t worth your time. Ignore the invitation to connect. In fact, many networking sites will allow you to bring in your entire contact list which some email sites generate from anyone you ever emailed. So, crazy caterer may not have actually been asking you specifically to connect at all.

I need to go back and read the original thread regarding this caterer. Sounds pretty shifty to me. I wouldn’t respond at all.

@fivemonthsnotice:  I just went back and read the other thread. That is CRAZY! There is absolutely no way that you owe him a dime! What a shifty character! Even moreso that he thinks this is the way the industry works. By that standard anyone who has ever made mention of possibly wanting to book with him owes him money. What a sketchball.

I would just skip the letter. LinkedIn sometimes provides suggestions of who from your email contacts you may want to connect with, and some people just select all of them without thinking…I don’t think there is any intention behind his request.

PP may be right, he might not have actually meant to request you. I’d just leave it alone, he seems like the sort of person who will move on once he stops having any effect on you.

Skip the letter, ignore him.

The letter will just add more fuel to the fire.
