Fedex & UPS Bogus Email Scams



    Fedex & UPS Bogus Email Scams
    NBC 5
    Online thieves are using phony emails to “phish” for personal information -- and even book flights with victims' money.

    It seems like new email scams are popping up almost every week: this time, scammers are impersonating UPS and FedEx. The companies are warning customers of fraudulent emails that are NOT from the companies themselves.

    Some of the emails say there's a lost or late package waiting for you; others ask for money for a package delivery. Both companies advise against opening these emails or click any links inside.

    UPS and Fedex both have warnings about the scams on their websites. They also have examples of the fake emails, so you can spot one if you recieve it.
