"Legal Court Notice" Payment Scams
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.
A Sample of the Fake Court Notice

Sent: Tuesday, June 6, 2017 6:07:03 PM
Subject: LEGAL COURT NOTICE
As we didn't receive your payment so we are going to file this case against you on Friday June 09, 2017 at your district courthouse.
To know the courthouse kindly visit http://www.uscourts.gov/court-locator with your zip code.
You will be served with a notice to appear at your district courthouse in next seven business days.
You can still avoid this case by making a payment towards your total outstanding or else this case file will be executed as mentioned.
