Attempts have been made to disguise emails and websites that appear to originate from FedEx. Our company does not send emails advising that we have specific goods or merchandise in our possession and require up-front payment by money transfer before the goods will be delivered.

FedEx does not take part of or are affiliated with any organizations offering, special purchases, loans or investment opportunities. Especially when there is "Free" gifts that require you to pay "shipping and handling", "redemption fees" or "taxes" before delivery.

Also, be wary or cautious when you are about to receive an unexpected check, money order or cash from an unknown Shipper. These financial instruments may be counterfeit.
