SCAM ALERT: fake court notice email making its rounds.

Internet scammers are sending emails claiming to come from a real law firm called Baker & McKenzie. The email states you are scheduled  to appear in court and should click a link to view a copy of the court  notice. The email is not from Baker & McKenzie and has no connection  to the firm. It is an attempt by cyber criminals to trick you into  trying to prevent a negative consequence. If you click on the link, you download and install malware.

In the recent past there have been a series of these court appearance malware attacks that claim to be from law firms or government entities.  If you get one of these scams, do not click any links or open any  attachments, delete these emails.
