Fedex Spoof email

  Blackhat 18:11 01 Sep 2009

I get spoof emails all the time but on this occasion I wanted to alert Fedex about my latest email. Basically I have spent too much time on the Fedex web site trying to find an email link to report spoof mail to with no joy, is it worth bothering.

Here is the content,

I just googled the name at the bottom and came across this, click here

I assume that Fedex would be aware of it by now.

'This is to inform you that we are in possession of your Parcel (which include a certified cheque worth of $800,000.00 USD and other vital documents)' would have thought that this gives it away.

I wouldn't bother reporting to Fedex. With these type of emails if I feel so inclined I do a whois back trace by looking at the email headers and send an email to the originating ISP with the email headers. In most cases it does the trick, Microsoft are usually very good at replying telling you what steps they are taking to block the account.
