This targeted email from "FedEx" is actually a clever phishing attempt from a Japanese server. While many faculty & staff members on campus receive packages regularly, it can be easy to overlook some of the glaring oddities of this message:

  • Sender from "" aka NOT FedEx!
  • Date formatted in European style (DD/MM/YYYY instead of MM/DD/YYYY)
  • Attempt at official email by placing copyright logos

The link does of course ask for your credentials to verify your account, but Tennessee Tech does not integrate its accounts directly with FedEx! If you are expecting deliveries, always make sure they come from a FedEx address and verify the tracking information.
