If You Get An Email Ordering You To Appear in Court Delete It
There is a scam that is currently hitting people's email inboxes. The email (the one I got is below) tells you that you have been ordered to a court hearing for some random offense. The email also include a link to find out why you have been requested to appear and face charges. DO NOT OPEN IT!! If you do, you are susceptible to having all of your personal information grabbed by the scammers who will then do what they do best...steal and use your vital online information.
I am sure you have all have received an email like the one I get (almost every other day). Be careful.
