False "Court Case" Email Scam Circulating throughout Nation
The Nebraska Judicial Branch wants to warn the public about another computer virus that is being delivered via email which falsely claims to be about a court case. The Judicial Branch has again learned that emails are being sent regarding a supposed upcoming court case; however, the email is a scam.
Opening any attachment or clicking on any link in the message may trigger a malicious program designed to infect the recipient's computer.
The email is not from the courts nor is it about a court case.
If you receive a general email claiming to be from a court:
- Do not open any attachments, click on any links, or unsubscribe. Doing so may install the malware/virus onto your computer.
- Delete the email.
The Nebraska court system does not send out unsolicited emails regarding court cases.
