Police have issued a computer virus warning linked to a ‘notice to appear in court’ email.

The email claims to be from ‘Green Whick Attorneys of Law’ and tells the recipient that they are required to appear in court. If the recipient clicks a link to download the court notice they then receive a virus.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “Courts or law firms are very unlikely to send unsolicited emails demanding that recipients appear in court. If you receive one of these ‘Notice to Appear’ emails, do not click any links or open any attachments that it contains.
