Notice of court attendance scam email

Be aware there is yet another dangerous email being sent in an attempt to get people to open an attached file. This particular email is preying on the fears of everyone who thinks they may be called into court. If you’ve been following our series on scam emails, or potentially dangerous emails, by now you should know that anything that contains an attached zip file is automatically suspicious. 

This fake notice to appear in court claims that you need to bring documents with you and it even tells you if necessary you have a right to obtain a lawyer for your protection, “How nice of them!”

But be aware the attached zip file contains an executable virus or Trojan horse.

These emails spoof some law firm domain names like;, or and others in the headers. It is important to note that while these are real law firms and real law firm domain names these emails are not from them.
