Fake Subpoena Phishing Scam E-mails

The email claiming to be from United States District Court advising you that you have been served a subpoena appears to be a phishing scam or virus/malware scam.  Subpoenas are not normally delivered by email.  Phishing e-mails typically use official looking webpages or documents designed to trick you into believing they are from a legitimate source.  Once you are at the site, they may ask you to provide or verify personal information such as bank account information, credit card information, social security information and password information.  Another variation is to draw you to a webpage that will infect your computer with a virus, trojan horse or other malware.   If you get such an e-mail, you should delete it and do not provide any of the requested information.  However, if you are not convinced that you have a fraudulent e-mail, please contact the United States District Court directly and explain the e-mail you received.  If you give out any personal information, contact United States District Court immediately and depending on what information you gave out, it may be wise to take measures to protect against identity theft (e.g. contact credit agencies, close accounts, cleanse computer).  Many e-mail solicitations that appear to be phishing e-mails are set forth throughout this website and below:
