Beware of "Legal Court Notice" Payment Scams

Beware of "Legal Court Notice" Payment Scams

Fake email court notices like the one below, which claim that the recipients will be prosecuted in court because their payments were not received, should be ignored and deleted. The email notices are just another scam used by cyber criminals or scammers to trick and frighten their potential victims into sending them money by threatening legal actions. If potential victims respond to the fake email messages they will be subsequently asked to send money in order to avoid arrest.

Please continue below.

Remember, the United States government will never send warrants or legal notices via email messages. They would be served in person by a U.S. Marshal or other law enforcement officer. Anyone receiving a fake arrest warrant should contact the FBI or the district U.S. Marshals Office. If there is any question regarding the authenticity of a warrant, contact your district clerk of court.
