Consumers need to be aware of FedEx scam

FedEx is warning consumers not to fall for a new scam that tries to trick them into opening a text or an email about the status of a delivery.

People across the country are receiving texts and emails that appear to be from FedEx alerting them to a package. The messages contain a "tracking code" and a link to set "delivery preferences."


Some people are getting texts with their names and others are addressed to "hey dude."


The link sends people to a fake Amazon satisfaction survey. After answering some questions, you are asked for a credit card number to claim a free product.


“FedEx does not send unsolicited text messages or emails to customers requesting money or package or personal information. Any suspicious text messages or emails should be deleted without being opened, and reported to email address abuse@fedex.com."
