This scam relies on contacting you by email or phone to resolve an alleged issue with a FedEx shipment. Once contact is made, the attacker uses social engineering techniques to attempt to defraud you. The email is typically vague and provides little or no details of the shipment.

This set of fraudulent emails claims to be from FedEx regarding a package that could not be delivered. These emails ask the receiver to open an attachment in order to obtain the airbill or invoice needed to pick up their package. The attachment in the email may contain a virus. Please do not open the attachment, and delete the email immediately.

The frequency of this email tends to increase close to the holiday season, presumably to exploit the growth in shipping volumes.
