Fraudulent Email Alert from FedEx

 

    FedEx has received reports that there has been an increase in fraudulent

    emails claiming to come from FedEx. These messages typically have a

    vague subject referencing a FedEx tracking, invoice or item number and

    an attached zip file with 'FEDEXInvoice' in the file name that may

    contain a computer virus. If you receive a message matching this

    description do not open the attachment. Delete the email immediately.

     

    A new variant of fraudulent emails is circulating including the subject

    line "Shipping Information." This fraudulent email wants customers to

    open a Microsoft(r) Word document for more information or click on a

    "Print Receipt" link.

     

    If you receive this message do not open the email or click on the

    attachment or link. Please forward suspected fraudulent FedEx emails to

    abuse@fedex.com.

     

    What is important to remember is that FedEx does not send unsolicited

    emails to customers requesting information regarding packages, invoices,

    account numbers, passwords or personal information.
