FED-EX Fraudulent Email Scam

Date of News Release: 05/14/2008

(Hickory, KY) The Kentucky State Police want to inform the public of a scam that recently began showing up in people's email inbox. Kentucky State Police has received multiple complaints of an email from "FEDEX Courier Service". The email states that the recipient should contact "FEDEX Courier Service" and give them personal information so that a check can be delivered to their home. The email contains poor grammar and sentence structure indicating that the author is not fluent in the English language. This email is not from the FED-EX shipping company. The public is reminded to delete any email that asks for personal information. It is also good practice to never give any personal information when responding to any emails.
