LinkedIn attempted Scam/419

Frustrating to be receiving this, the 2nd time someone sent me something suspicious via LinkedIn.  A question that comes to my mind, is when are they going to make the profiles more authentic looking?

I reported this one to LinkedIn via the spam button, but I never got a response to my first time.  My feeling is LinkedIn is still new to this and not set up to handle this, yet.  Microsoft does an amazing job, and I was also impressed by the response I got from Yahoo (after I finally figured out how to report a 419 account, AOL never heard from, Google is just automated).

Good Day.

It is a fact that we have not met before neither have we had any previous business dealings, but I strongly believe that with understanding and trust we can have a successful business relationship. I am a principal staff with a Finance Company here in United Kingdom. I have access to very vital information that can be used to transfer funds out of the project account to a secured account outside United Kingdom .I have the required machinery to get it done since I am still in active service. If it was possible for me to do it alone I would not have bothered soliciting for foreign support, ultimately I need an honest foreigner to play an important role in the completion of this business deal. I look forward to meeting you in person and doing good business with you and please treat as confidential.

I wait your letter of intent to partner with me.
