Notice to appear in court

PostAuthor: neale666 » Wed Jan 22, 2014 3:59 am

If you get one of these emails with a zip file attachment, please don't open the attachment, it's almost certainly malware which will infect your PC.

I've been getting notices to appear in court all over the States for a couple of months now, as my domain was originally a US based address, back when I started it in the old days.

It's a doddle for me, given that I haven't been in the US for 20 years, but people who are over there may get caught and open it to see what they have to address. I'm sure the courts over there don't send generic notices to appear and tell you that all the details are in the zip file.

FWIW

No they don't, at least not in states I am familiar with. Best policy is to just delete it if you don't know what it is. Thanks for letting us know.

Please take the time to edit your profile to show your location. City, State/Province, and Country.
It is easier to help you if we know where you are.

Yeah, I have gotten a couple of those in the last 3-4 weeks, too.
I just delete them. 1) because I am certain my 'legal' situation is totally dormant, & 2) I haven't been out of state in several years so reckon it's selling something or a scam.

I'm pretty confident that email is not considered a valid way to deliver a summons in this country.

Be especially aware of a new piece of ransomware called CryptoLocker. Look it up and beware if you value your files.

All I ever get is those ones offering penis enlargement. At first I thought it was the ex sending them. :;: .

FWIW The latest trend on this phishing attack is Eviction Notices, once again, never been a worry to me as I'm pretty sure I wouldn't evict myself, but I'd rather not see anyone else caught out by it, either.
