FedEx "Pending Delivery" Confirmation Phishing Scams

Recipients of the fake FedEx email message below are asked NOT to follow the instructions in it.

Once the cybercriminals behind the fake email message receive the stolen account credentials, they will gain access to the accounts and use them fraudulently.

In order not to become a victim of phishing scams, FedEx customers should never click on a link to sign into their accounts, they should go directly to http://www.fedex.com/, select their region and sign-in from there instead.

Persons who have already been tricked into clicking on the link in the phishing email message, are asked to change their FedEx password and contact FedEx for help immediately.
