New scams appear daily. Whether is is an email message claiming to be from a a Nigerian Prince or other member of a royal family seeking to transfer large sums of money out of the country or even if it supposedly from your bank, asking to verify your user name and password, all of these have one objective: to steal money from you.
A new scam has appeared in recent days, At least it is new to me as I haven't heard of it before.
The email message claims to be from a court and concerns a hearing be held before that court. The email states that it contains legal subpoena/summons issued to you. The email then goes on and asks for some of your personal information. Don't be fooled!
First of all, no court ever issues a summons or subpoena by email. None. Next, the email message does not mention the name of the court, an obvious clue. Finally, no contact
information is provided in the body of the message.
If you receive such a message, click on DELETE. Do not reply, do not ask for more information, don't do anything that suggests you are a a potential victim.
