We’re warning the public about a court email scam which could, if opened, allow ‘malware’ to enter your computer.

The scam emails purport to be from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and claim that you have to appear in court. The email entices people to click on a link to view their start time or case details. This link is likely to lead to malware.This email has no connection to the CPS, which has confirmed that it will never email witnesses in order to summons them to court.

Anyone receiving the email should not download any attachments or click any links, and should report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.
