Beware of "FedEx Verify your Shipping Address" Email Scam

The "Verify your Shipping Address" email message below, which appears as if it was sent by FedEx, claiming that the recipients' postal package was unable to be delivered because the address is incorrect, 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 that steals account credentials, credit card, and personal information.

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 the notification to update my address with a Fedex email address. Unfortunately, I did indeed click on but did not verify my address. Since then, on a daily basis.

    I am receiving approximately 100 emails a day with Fedex return addresses. I have blocked most, but they fill up in spam.

    I forwarded all information to the REAL Fedex. Any other suggestions? I am so careful not to click on the "confirm to unsubscribe" messages, but I fell for this one.

    I have received at least ten such messages and I assumed it was Fedex asking me the update my address. I did this and added also my email.

    The messages still keep coming. I became suspicious when the message said they could no delivery my parcel. I was not expecting any parcel.

    I have orders to shortly be delivered, how can I protect them and also erase this scam from my computer

    Thank you

    Frank.

    I received the following email:


    "We would like to inform you that your package could not be delivered due to incomplete information of your physical address.
    Please use the button below to update your personal address."

    If you click on the "Update Address" link, it will let you respond via email.

    Here are the fools that you will be replying too:

      I am typically very paranoid & do not respond to these things BUT I have been waiting on a package that was supposed to be shipped last week & I unfortunately fell for this thinking that was the reason I haven't gotten it yet.

      I was sent to an email as well & gave them my 1st and last name & my address, what do I do now!?

      I only found this looking for a direct link to fedex site to make sure it was updated! I am freaking out!

        I did the same thing. Clicked on the link because I was, in fact, expecting a package in that timeframe.

        Replied to the email as the user above did to the same set of email addresses. Now I'm getting a ton of spam email that's not being forwarded to my spam folder in my inbox.

        Just be careful going forward because the cybercriminals will contact you and attempt to scam you.
