HoganWillig has learned that the New York State Unified Court System and local courts have received inquiries regarding email notices to appear in court proceedings.
Many of the notices purport to come from the NYS Unified Court System. The notices also state that the recipient must open an attachment to learn the time and location of the court appearance. The notices are an email scam and the attachments contain a computer virus.
Members of the public should be aware that the e-mails are not from the New York State Unified Court System and they should delete the emails without opening the attachment.
