I could see ONLY 2 linkedin profiles in your name which I have listed below, can you please provide the link to the other profile.

Please go through the following link to check CLEAR STEPS on how to CLOSE your Linkedin account:

You can close your only LinkedIn account on the Privacy & Settings page:

Move your cursor over your photo in the top right of your homepage and select Privacy & Settings.
You may be prompted to sign in to your account again.
Click the Account side tab next to the shield icon near the bottom left of the page.
Under the Helpful Links section, click Close your account.

Instead of closing incase you want to merge all the accounts, you can check the following link.

Once you merge please let me know so that I can help you with tips to make your linkedin profile lot better with some easy changes.

Please try and let me know if you have any further queries.



Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have already checked these steps. My issue is that I cannot sign to my duplicate accounts, so I think I have to use this option: "I can't sign in - I don't know the email address registered to the duplicate account I want to close."
I already have made the identification successfully like requested ("Click the link to begin verifying your identity:") but there is no response from Linkedin yet.
I thought that you could help me from this forward. But I assume now that this is not case?

By itself LinkedIn wont be able to Close any account. It is the actual OWNER of the account who has to PROVE the ownership and then close it. Can you please let me know if we can do a remote session and see if we can solve the problem for you.



Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I proved the ownership but then nothing happened. How you could help me with a remote session?
Expert:  toughguy9 replied 1 year ago.

If you have proved your ownership and could login to LinkedIn account, you can close the account yourself and help you do that. For that you should be able to login to your LinkedIn account.
