Better Business Bureau warns Phony Court Email Summons carry Malware

 

Better Business Bureau - BBBNashville, TN – In today’s society, almost anyone could be sued at any point in time, and that’s what makes a malicious malware scam so effective. Better Business Bureau (BBB) warns business and consumers to watch out for fake emails that summons you for a court appearance. If you’ve received an email stating that you are supposed to appear to court, delete it immediately.

Some scams pop up repeatedly, each time with a different twist. How do you know the summons is a fake? Courts don’t send summons via email. Legitimate court appearance notices are routinely delivered via the U.S. Postal Service, Sheriffs Department or by a process server, never by e-mail or phone calls from someone identifying them self as a court official.
