Re: Alva Baby being investigated?

This sounds odd to me. I would call up Fedex (but not any phone number provided by this person) and tell them your concerns. Ask them if they can verify that Erik Wienclawski works for them and if this email is legit. With so many scam artists out there you really can't be too careful.

Re: Alva Baby being investigated?

Wondering if it is just a weird scam thing.

I got an email the other day from "Fed-Ex". It said that they weren't able to deliver my package and I needed to click on the link to get in touch to set up a pick-up time.

SPAM

Did the email have the Alva name actually in it?

This, definitely.

It sounds really strange and you just never know, these days. Call Alva Baby, also.

Re: Alva Baby being investigated?

that's really..odd. I would call fedex themselves (through their site phone number NOT the phone number he provided) and ask what is up. It sounds to me like they are trying to charge you duties though.
