The Federal Court of Australia has been contacted by a large number of people who have received the email message below, purportedly sent by the Federal Court on behalf of the Federal Circuit Court, subpoenaing them to attend court at a specified time. The email also requires the recipient to click on a link to both the court address and case related information. But, neither the Federal Court nor the Federal Circuit Court issue subpoenas in such an informal way. These emails have not been issued by the Court and are fraudulent. If you receive one of these emails, just delete it. This is because clicking on any of the links in the email message will lead to viruses or other malware.
