The Nebraska Judicial Branch wants to warn the public about another computer virus that is being delivered via email which falsely claims to be about a court case. The Judicial Branch has again learned that emails are being sent regarding a supposed upcoming court case; however, the email is a scam.
Opening any attachment or clicking on any link in the message may trigger a malicious program designed to infect the recipient’s computer.
The email is not from the courts nor is it about a court case.
If you receive a general email claiming to be from a court:
- Do not open any attachments, click on any links, or unsubscribe. Doing so may install the malware/virus onto your computer.
- Delete the email.
The Nebraska court system does not send out unsolicited emails regarding court cases.
