Fake FedEx E-Mail
So I got this email tonight and wanted to post in it case others got it and did not know what to do. I got this email from someone pretending to be from FedEx addressing me on a first name basis. This email contained an attachment which was a virus. The attachment was removed from whatever the scammer used to send this email so the attachment is an empty text file named InfectedAttachmentRemoved.txt this was sent from firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is to confirm that one or more of your parcels has been shipped.
