I was messaged lately by a FedEx service (email@example.com) mailer which states that:
The parcel was sent your home address.
And it will arrive within 7 business day.
More information and the tracking number are attached in document below.

Thing is, I don't have any parcel headed for me, not that I know of any anyway. And if I did, I didn't give my email address to someone in FedEx.
I googled for the FedEx Notice Email Scam and found out that there have been lots of variations since God knows when. Also attached with the message is a file called "Fedex docs.zip", which infects your computer with a virus or a trojan once dowloaded. Now, if you see a FedEx notice message in your inbox telling you something about an unknown parcel with very vague description, DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY. Chances are that's a trojan and it's going to infect your computer.
'Till my next installment.
