These are all phishing scams! Scammers will attempt to lure you into clicking on the embedded phishing links that lead to fake log-in pages. These pages require you to submit log-in credentials to check package deliveries, change settings, or whatever other tasks they’ve prompted you to complete.

The scammers’ ultimate goal is to steal your information — they’ll record all the sensitive information you enter on these fake pages and use it to commit cybercrimes, e.g., hack into your bank account, withdraw money, or steal your identity. Don’t let them!
