State Judiciary warns of email scam
A written message from the state Judiciary says its department continues to receive reports of email scams, in which emails purporting to come from state Judiciary offices or staff are being sent to individuals worldwide. The most recent email scam claims to be from a bailiff and instructs the individual to vacate his or her premises and to click on a link for more information. When the individual clicked on the link, it reportedly crashed her computer.
Please do not click on the link or respond to these email scams. In general, the public will not be contacted by the Judiciary for official business by email and the Judiciary does not summon people to court electronically.
If you receive an email you are not sure about, please contact the Judiciary’s public affairs office at email@example.com or call (808) 539-4909.
