'Official' court email isn't, BBB says

The Better Business Bureau of Northern Indiana is warning consumers not to fall for a scam email that pretends to be an official court summons.

“If ever you are obligated to attend a court hearing, even one that is located in another state, you will not receive an email notifying you of this,” the BBB said Tuesday in a news release. “Notification will be sent by mail. Most likely, you will have to sign for it to prove that you’ve actually received the notice.”

Anyone receiving an email supposedly from a court should delete it and not open the attachment. Scammers place malware in attachments, software that can damage your computer and make it vulnerable to someone trying to steal passwords and account information.

Also consider informing the local BBB at 260-423-4433 or the Federal Trade Commission’s watchdog group at spam@uce.gov.
