(WWBT/WTXL) - Crooks are taking advantage of the shipping rush before Christmas.

FedEx is warning everyone about fraudulent emails. The subject line will say "FedEX: Delivery Problems Notification," but don’t be fooled.

This is not from FedEx. Do not open it. Delete it immediately.

The emails have a link that will infect your computer and can connect you to infected websites.

Officials say these links can point to any number of infected websites all over the globe. Some of these sites may look like fedex.com, while others do not.

FedEx does not send unsolicited emails to customers requesting information regarding packages, invoices, account numbers, passwords or personal information.

That's not the only scam you need to be aware of.

There are several other involving FedEx, to include fake tracking numbers and fake emails concerning your ATM card. You can find out more about those scams here

If you do get a fake email, don't open it, delete it or forward the email to abuse@fedex.com.
