According to this email, international delivery company FedEx has sent you a message with the “required information”.
It does not say what this required information relates to but instead urges you to click a button to view details.
The email includes the FedEx logo and a seemingly legitimate FedEx footer.
However, the email is not from FedEx and the link does not lead to any FedEx related information, required or otherwise.
The email is spam that is designed to trick you into visiting a scammy online drug store that tries to peddle a range of pharmaceutical products.
The spammers know that at least a few of the people who they have tricked into visiting the spam site will end up buying one or more of its dodgy products.
Purchasing products from one of these spam websites is a very bad idea. Those who do have no way of knowing if the product is the real thing or some potentially harmful substitute. And, because the medicine has not been properly prescribed by a doctor, it may interfere with other medications that users are taking or be unsuitable – or even downright dangerous – due to other health conditions that the buyer may have.
That is if they actually receive the product they ordered at all.
Online criminals regularly use fake FedEx notification emails to distribute malware and trick people into visiting spam sites.
The FedEx website provides information about recognising and reporting such fraudulent emails.
