Detectives Warn Of E-Mail Scam
Staff Report

Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department detectives are warning citizens of a viral e-mail being received by county residents advising of false court notifications.
According to a press release from KCSD, Kosciusko County Clerk  of the Courts Ann Torpy and KCSD detectives are warning of a recent email that has a potential virus attached.
Torpy and detectives were made aware Thursday morning of an e-mail that was sent to a local citizen stating that they were to appear on a specific time and date to a court hearing.
Upon opening the email, the virus attaches to the recipient’s email from an outside source.
Torpy advised that the Kosciusko County Clerk’s Office does not make notifications to the public through the use of e-mail, but rather the U.S. Postal Service or the KCSD. Detectives also stated that they are unaware of any court service that uses e-mail as a source of legal notification for proceedings.
KCSD detectives advised that if citizens received a suspicious e-mail from an unknown source, it is best to simply delete before clicking and opening the e-mail or risk a possible viral infection to your computer.
