Beware of New Email Scam
News 10 abc has posted about a new FedEx warning regarding e-mail scams. Specifically, e-mails are being sent to people with the subject "FedEx: Delivery Problems Notification." The e-mail however leads those who click to a virus that infects their computer. FedEx has said that it does not send out unsolicited e-mails, so despite the e-mail looking professional, and some links even looking like FedEx.com, don't click! You can check out one of the sample scam e-mails at News 10 abc.
I for one am always hesitant of any kind of e-mail like this. I've recently received a number of scam texts even, one text saying "You're Delta Flight Has Been Confirmed, click here" and another scam saying "Western Union: You have money waiting, click here." I always look things up before I click, as unfortunately years ago I was the victim of both identify theft and a computer virus. And let me tell you- identity theft STINKS. And it's a pain to get fixed. Here's to hoping your holiday season is scam free!
