Please be aware of a recent notification of an email scam entitled Notice to Appear in Court or similar wording that changes periodically.  The official looking message indicates it has being sent from the police and does look very plausible.  The recipient is asked to download a copy of the ‘court notice’ attached, which is likely to contain a virus.

If you do receive this type of email, please contact Action Fraud either by telephone on 0300 123 2040 or online via the following link
