VIDEO – More FedEx “Incorrect Delivery Address” Malware Emails

by Brett M. Christensen

Outline

Emails purporting to be from delivery company FedEx claim that a package sent to you has been taken to a local office because it could not be delivered due to an incorrect delivery address. They instruct you to click a link or open an attached file to print out a shipping invoice.

Analysis

The emails are not from FedEx. Clicking the links or opening the attachments in these emails can install malware on your computer. These malware emails have been distributed in various forms for several years.

Alternative versions may claim to be from other well-known delivery companies. The Hoax-Slayer YouTube video below provides more information about these FedEx malware attacks.

Importance Notice

After considerable thought and with an ache in my heart, I have decided that the time has come to close down the Hoax-Slayer website.

These days, the site does not generate enough revenue to cover expenses, and I do not have the financial resources to sustain it going forward.

Moreover, I now work long hours in a full-time and physically taxing job, so maintaining and managing the website and publishing new material has become difficult for me.

And finally, after 18 years of writing about scams and hoaxes, I feel that it is time for me to take my fingers off the keyboard and focus on other projects and pastimes.

When I first started Hoax-Slayer, I never dreamed that I would still be working on the project all these years later or that it would become such an important part of my life. It's been a fantastic and engaging experience and one that I will always treasure.

I hope that my work over the years has helped to make the Internet a little safer and thwarted the activities of at least a few scammers and malicious pranksters.

A Big Thank You

I would also like to thank all of those wonderful people who have supported the project by sharing information from the site, contributing examples of scams and hoaxes, offering suggestions, donating funds, or helping behind the scenes.

I would especially like to thank David White for his tireless contribution to the Hoax-Slayer Facebook Page over many years. David's support has been invaluable, and I can not thank him enough.

Closing Date

Hoax-Slayer will still be around for a few weeks while I wind things down. The site will go offline on May 31, 2021. While I will not be publishing any new posts, you can still access existing material on the site until the date of closure.

Thank you, one and all!
