Beware of "Fedex Email Containing Confidential Personal Information Was Sent To You" Scam

2018-04-09T09:55:23  +
Beware of "Fedex Email Containing Confidential Personal Information Was Sent To You" Scam

The email message below, which appears as if it was sent by FedEx, claiming an email containing confidential personal information was sent to the recipients, is a phishing scam. The fake email message was sent by cybercriminals and not by FedEx, to trick the recipients into clicking on the link within it, which will take them to a malicious or compromised website, where they will be asked to download and install viruses and malware disguised as a document. The recipients may also be taken to a phishing website, where they will be asked to sign into their email accounts or other online accounts.

Please continue reading below.

But, once the recipients attempt to sign into the fake or phishing website with their account credentials (username and password), it will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the scam, who will use the stolen credentials to hijack the recipients’ accounts. Therefore, recipients of the fake email message (see below), who were tricked into clicking on the link within it, should change their online account passwords and scan their computers or mobile devices for viruses and malware.

    I received an e-mail, went into my spam box (yahoo.com) saying I had 4 broken e-mails and I was to click on a link to have them restored. The sender address was ereisiza@bountymailings.com. Entered bountymailings.com and the only match was a pregnancy advice site in England, so I presume this is either phishing or an attempt to install mlaware.

    Has this been reported by anyone else? Saw no references to this anywhere.

    I got this email yesterday too. It was put in my Junk folder and I just happened to open the folder today and saw it. It was considered by my email's filter system as fake and untrustworthy.

    I googled FedEx and the phrase from content preview and got here. Most people don't have association with FedEx, and real FedEx address wouldn't be sent to Junk/Spam folder. Always look up unfamiliar senders before even consider opening. Scammers would use well-known company names.

          It is a scam or fake. The people behind the scam are stealing your money. Do Not send them your information or money.

          If you sent your money using Western Union or another money transfer service you will not be able to get back your money, if the money has been collected. Nonetheless, contact the money transfer company for help.

          If you have used your credit card, please contact your bank for help.

        Agree, but, it's not really FedEx's problem. Just because scammers use the FedEx name doesn't all of a sudden mean that FedEx is somehow tied into it.

        Law enforcement are the ones who can handle these scammers, but sadly, they are more than likely overseas, and will never see a day in jail.

        I also received a scam email in my spam box, but deleted it with all my other spam, didn't give it a second thought.

        People, it's real easy. If you get an email that looks suspicious, or you don't know where it came from, just delete it and not worry about it. It is most likely a spam email, which is why it is in your spam folder! Half the time, I don't even look to see what's in my spam folder, unless waiting for a response from somewhere, I just click on the trash can and it empties out the entire spam folder without me having to go into the actual spam folder.

        And here's a very helpful side note: If you ever do read a spam email and it says something about sending money to get something great and wonderful, IT WILL BE A SCAM. And any email that you are unsure of, simply delete it and forget it.

    Received this email in my browser. Says it was from FedEx International but the actual sender was gmac@blackwatch.com.

    Content identical to suspicious email as referenced in the above referenced article.

    I was immediately suspicious, flagged the email as spam in my email program, then deleted it. I also went out to my webmail account (where my mail originates) and flagged the it as spam there, then deleted it from the server.

    Received the FedEx scammail today.
    Beware that the email has an "Unsubscribe"-link in it.

    Don't click it as it will give the scammers access rather than unsubscribe you.

    Received an email in my spam box from the address: Catherine eruledog@bountymailings.com, with the wording:

    "FexEx No 3529 We've got a new message for you. An email containing personal information was sent to you."

    This sounds similar to other email scams registered from on your site from other people. If so, then you have the email address of a scammer if that helps you to find them.

    I also had similar email from FEDEX international with subject personal information. I did not open and will delete. Thank you for this information. I had previously opened an email that said it was from microsoft and inserted malware into chrome book that cause chrome book not to work and said to call number to get rid of virus. Thinking they were from microsoft, I had allowed remote access to my computer before realizing that it was a scam.

    I did run antI viral scans and restored computer to time prior to allowing scammer remote access to my computer.

    I am so grateful to all the people who wrote comments about their experience with scammers and malware and about how to protect personal information.

      I never see tips as how to spot scams. Tips I use:

      -Don't click links on things you did not ask for.
      -Check the sender, anything off?
      -Always put your guard up, be suspicious, be alert.
      -Scams sometimes look exactly like things you already familiar with!
      -Always, always hover your mouse cursor over the link and watch the website address link pop up.
      -Read carefully. With email scams, link scams, mostly you read things you totally don't know and that is 95% a scam. Next, things your familiar with; say it was sent from this site. If the address would says www.threatalert.com/... or sometime like .org; your missing 1 word, something is not right, or off, so it's a fake. They do this with things you are familiar with, things you think is the real deal.

      The worst thing is an empty bank account, or other online accounts stolen( you put time and energy in). Better be save than sorry. 1 out of the 50 who has already experience with this.
