EPISODE 27 ~ TOP TIP: Shipping Scams: Be Wary of Your Shipping E-mails This Holiday Season

I’m going to give you a top top about the holiday season.  Beware of phishing scams involving shipping.  Scammers send out emails that look like they’re from UPS, FedEx and the US Postal Service.  They have convincing subject lines like “We could not deliver your parcel” or “Please confirm your shipment” or “Your order is ready to be delivered.”  We all send and receive so many packages in December, that it’s easy to fall for these ploys and click on the link in the email.  If you do, they will either load malware onto your computer OR request personal information to steal your identity —or both.  So if you receive an email about a shipment, do NOT open it or click on it.  Instead go to the legitimate company’s site and check any shipments of yours from there.
