Default Delivery Issues

Hey guys,

I ordered Dragon Rogues from TheClymb a while ago when they were on sale, and just recently got an email from FedEx saying that the "package was to big to be delivered" and I had to "pick it up myself". They told me to come to the place with an invoice that they attached, but the invoice file won't open. Should I call them?

I'd call/email TheClymb and ask them WTF is going on. Goggles should not be arriving in a package "too big to be delivered". I guess you could call FedEx too because maybe there is a mistake on their end.

It's def a virus. I've been ordering a few items lately and each time it's shipped fed ex I get one of these. Don't open it. Get the tracking number from the clymb and use the Fedex website.

No you shouldn't. But, you should run a virus scan.

They never e-mail you anything, definitely a scam. I used to get oversized packages or signature required through UPS, Fed Ex and USPS and they leave you a paper sticky note on your door that you use to pick up the item. I have never once gotten an e-mail telling me such. At most, the tracking number will say that it was a failed delivery attempt and you can enable e-mail notifications but the actual confirmation you need to pick up the item is a physical, paper note they leave at your residence.

The last time I bought something from eBay I had the same kind of thing happen. Definitely a scam of sorts. I suggest forwarding the email to FedEx support & noting as a scam, then delete it from your computer. Unless an email comes from an address I know or it's a legit email address from the company, I usually delete them... Always check the senders email address and open in safe mode, when possible, to limit malware, etc from getting in your computer
