Email Claiming To Be From Law Firm Delivers Malware Instead of Justice.
“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 & 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 scam emails, DO NOT CLICK any links or open any attachments.
DELETE THESE EMAILS IMMEDIATELY!
