In the fraudulent example above, the email contains a subject line “Last reminder: FirstName LastName, please respond immediately.” Selecting the button “Update My Address” will create a new email message prepopulated with a list of email addresses. This button, when clicked, could potentially execute code in the background which may be malicious. In addition, sending your physical address to any of the listed email addresses could potentially set you up as a target for additional scams.

Fraudulent email alert

We have received reports of multiple fraudulent email campaigns disguised as FedEx delivery notices. These malicious spam emails can contain hyperlinks which, when clicked, will connect users to a compromised website that is hosting malware and can infect their computers or mobile devices. In addition, some of these emails may include an attachment, which, if opened, could infect the recipient's computer or mobile device.
These fraudulent emails have appeared with a variety of subject lines, to include the following:
  • "Last reminder: First Name Last Name, please respond immediately."
  • "FedEx: Not possible to make delivery"
  • "FedEx Express Ticket #12345"
  • "First Name FedEx International #12345"
  • If you receive a message matching the description above or any email that looks suspicious, do not open the email or click on any hyperlink. Do not open any attachment. Delete the email immediately or forward it to [email protected].
FedEx does not send unsolicited emails to customers requesting information regarding packages, invoices, account numbers, passwords or personal information. Unsolicited emails from an unauthorized third party cannot be prevented by FedEx.
If you are expecting an email from FedEx, confirm the email was sent from an official FedEx email address ([email protected]edex.com) and never access any hyperlink that does not point to www.fedex.com.
Visit the Recognize and Report Fraud page for more information about fraudulent emails.

i can say the systems are swamped. I was delivering mail yesterday and the UPS guy and I talked for a few minutes. We've both been doing our jobs for over 30 years and are stunned at the sheer volume of stuff right now. It's Christmas in May as people are spending money like they've been locked away for a year and need new stuff. Wait that happened didn't it. I usually count on this time of year to catch my breath . It's damn the torpedoes full speed ahead instead.
