Spoof E-mails

A resident in the Scottish Borders has received a succession of spoof emails supposedly coming from Police.

They are quite authentic looking at a first glance and have a Police.UK, Crime and Policing in England, Wales and Northern Ireland masthead. Some came from ‘Molex Incorporated’. They generally state ‘You are summoned to court’ and invite you to click to read a ‘subpoena’ and some have a name (e.g. Phil Coyne, Witness Care Unit).

These emails are bogus and should be deleted.
