I doubt that.

LinkedIn provides a facility to import your contacts.  You then select
which ones you want to invite.  They don't automatically spam your entire
contact list or there would have been many such 'invites' here.  The
contact import is not automatic and cannot be as they need the email
password to do it.

I suspect Scott simply pushed the wrong button.
