GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - A Grand Junction resident contacted the station about a suspicious text message he received, saying FedEx asked for additional delivery fees.

Brent Seligman, who is expecting a package, clicked on the link the message had embedded and filled out the information, thinking it was authentic.

The message asked for an additional delivery fee. Seligman says he became hesitant after it asked for an additional cost, which required his card information. He immediately contacted FedEx.

“Once I started talking with the agent and saying they wanted 2 dollars and 20 cents to redeliver. He said this was a scam, and I knew something was up,” said Seligman.

The link is no longer responsive.

FedEx states on their website that unexpected requests for money in return for delivery of a package are often warning signs of a scam.
