FedEx Scam?

Just got a text from a bizarre number (10000411 or some similar combination) from “FedEx” about a package being undeliverable and returned back to the stockroom. “Click the link to reschedule delivery” I didn’t order anything, but I thought maybe my partner had, so I clicked the link without thinking about it. (Later found out she had not ordered anything either).

The link redirected to a webpage with fedex graphics that looked initially convincing, but it was asking for my phone number, date of birth, and more – immediately felt fishy and I closed the window and cleared my browsing history.

Anyone else experience this? Did I screw myself clicking the link?

    As long as you didn’t enter your information you should be fine. All FedEx links will not ask you for your name, SS# or DOB, just the tracking number. I received a similar text but I called FedEx directly since I was actually waiting for a package.

    Common scam, posted here frequently. It’s a phishing attempt. If you didn’t enter any private information, you’re ok.
