Summary of eRumor:

This is an official looking email that appears to come from FedEx. It says that a shipment could not be delivered to your address and directs you to click a link to download a postal receipt to pick up your package at a local  FedEx office.
 

The Truth:

This is a fraudulent email according to a statement on the FedEx website.  It may be designed to trick readers into submitting personal information or it could actually infect computers with a virus when the link on the email is clicked.

The company statement said, “FedEx does not send unsolicited emails to customers requesting information regarding packages, invoices, account numbers, passwords or personal information.”    It also warned against opening any attachments or clicking links on the unsolicited email.
