The image alongside is of a scam email purporting to be from HM Courts and Tribunals Service.
There are a number of variations on a theme with these emails so be very careful. The only
purpose is to frighten you into believing that you will be liable to pay a far higher
amount of money unless you pay within a set number of days. This is not the case.
If you receive one of these emails, do not open or download the attachment, delete it.
If you believe that you have been targeted by a scam, or have information for Trading Standards on any
potential scams, you can contact consumeradvice.scot on 0808 164 6000. They are open 9am-5pm, Monday-Friday.
If you receive anything like this to your inbox that you think is worth circulating to our network please email
the details to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will circulate the details as we have with this information.
