I have been getting a lot of Spam about packages to be delivered. From Amazon, UPS, USPS and Fed Ex. They look fishy, and I know I don't have anything coming. Anyone know what kind of scam is behind this?

Beware, Walt!  Check your credit and debit cards!

From the article:
So the m.o. of the criminals is this: They will order expensive electronics on a stolen credit card and have the purchases shipped to the home of the legitimate credit card holder. The criminals are  hoping the card holder will become preoccupied with disputing the purchase with their bank.

That’s when the crooks strike a second time by sending a return label and package in which the item is supposedly to be shipped back to the retailer.

But if you ship it before noticing that the address on the return label is not that of legitimate warehouse or place of business, the retailer may hold you financially responsible for the cost of the stolen merchandise.

Thanks, but I daily monitor the cards. Nothing there. I have never opened any of the e-mails. None of the email names make any sense other than Spam.
