If you're waiting for Christmas packages, don't be fooled by shipping issues. FedEx is warning customers of a 'Delivery Problems Notification' email scam.

FedEx has received reports of fraudulent emails with the subject line FedEx: Delivery Problems Notification. The emails have links that will take you to a site that infects your computer when clicked.

"If you receive a message matching the description below, do not open the email or click on the hyperlink," warns FedEx. "Delete the email immediately or forward it to abuse@fedex.com."


FedEx does not send unsolicited emails asking for information on packages, invoices, account numbers, passwords or personal information.
