Even people in IT Support are prone to receiving deceiving emails from scam companies looking to infiltrate the computers of unsuspecting victims, Tetrabyte received this email just this morning, claiming to be from FedEx with a pretty benign looking “FedEx.zip” attachment. Tetrabyte would like to take the time to warn people about these scam emails and the danger they present to the online community. It’s important to Tetrabyte, as a Business I.T. Support Company we take this kind of fraud very seriously indeed and that we take the time to inform our readers. If you have received such an email, please do not open it.

The details of the FedEx notification email were as follows:
