Media Advisory: Scam e-mail reported
Scam e-mail that pretends to be from the Michigan Court of Appeals has been reported in Michigan.
In one reported version, the subject line states, "Your complaint received." The message reads, "Letter of acknowledgment. Hereby you are advised that we have received your complaint. Shortly after we receive your complaint confirmation we will initiate a trial." The recipient is then told to click on a hyperlink to "confirm your complaint."
"Please be warned: These e-mails are NOT from the Michigan Court of Appeals," said Court of Appeals Chief Judge William B. Murphy. "This is a scam, possibly designed to load malware or spyware on the victim's computer. Do not click on the link."
Similar scams have been reported in other states. Murphy said that those who receive the scam e-mails should report them to email@example.com
