Phony court case emails carry computer virus


If you have recently received an email telling you that you are involved in a court case and you don’t know anything about it, chances are it’s a scam. And you don’t want to open the attachment or links.

According to an alert by the U.S. Courts, the federal judiciary has learned of an email scam, in which emails supposedly coming from federal and state courts are infecting recipients with computer viruses.

According to the Security Operations Center of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, the emails are instructing recipients to report to a hearing on a specified day and time. The emails also instruct recipients to review an attached document for detailed case information. When the attachments or links in the email are opened, a malicious program is launched that infects the recipient’s computer. Several state courts have reported similar schemes, and also are warning the public about potential viruses.

Unless you are actively involved in a case in federal court and have consented to receive court notifications electronically, you generally will not be served with court documents electronically.

If you receive an email regarding a federal court case or matter of which you are unaware, you should contact the federal court in your jurisdiction before opening any attachments or links. Use the court locator at http://www.uscourts.gov/court_locator.aspx to find your court’s contact information.
