    The email scams get more creative

    I received an email today, entitled, "Notice to appear" and carrying a .zip file with the filename, "Court_Notice_Jones_Day.zip":

    Notice to Appear,

    Hereby you are notified that you have been scheduled to appear for your hearing that
    will take place in the court of Washington in January 17, 2014 at 10:00 am.

    Please bring all documents and witnesses relating to this case with you to Court on your hearing date.

    The copy of the court notice is attached to this letter.
    Please, read it thoroughly.

    Note: If you do not attend the hearing the judge may hear the case in your absence.

    Yours truly,
    Patricia Smith
    Clerk to the Court.

    This is one of those instances when I'm glad my wife and I have different email addresses, because she'd be in Freak City by now.

    I hope you didn't open the .zip file, right?

    About me - I take very little seriously especially myself.

    Ignorance is the lack of knowledge. Stupid is the refusal to do anything about it.

    Impersonating an officer of the court... I think that is looked down upon by the court... I'd send a copy to the local sheriff and the local court clerks office stating what you received... And just for good measure I would copy the address of the scammer on it too.

    Report to FBI. They have a special task force just to deal with these.

    Never criticize a dumb question because you've probably asked your fair share. But more important to remember, it's much easier to correct a dumb question than it is to correct a dumb mistake.

    Usually, when a solution is presented by a politician it creates more problems than it solves.

    People won't remember what you say and people won't remember what you do. What people will remember is how you made them feel.

    In a part of Texas where it is so flat, you can watch a mistreated dog run away for three days!

    I didn't know Washington played Tennis!

    Seriously, all notifications like this would be hand delivered to your last known address or place of business.

    Yeah but the one from the Nigerian Oil minister is as good as gold. I am waiting for my $2.5 million.

    Why has the world gone to hell since John Wayne died?

    Help save America, have your liberal spayed or neutered.

    "If the federal government could control anything, I could probably listen to that gibberish, but when they do such a horrible job in controlling spending, borrowing, controlling illegal drugs and illegal aliens coming into this country while they give AK-47s to Mexican drug lords through Fast and Furious, I don’t see much hope in them even beginning to control guns."
