It seems like every week, a new scam pops up in Louisiana and Texas. I am starting to think that scammers believe we are particularly naive because of how often we are targeted and warned of a new scam they have crafted.

However, while this email scam is new to me, it appears to be a resurfacing of an old scare tactic that attempts to get the recipient to click the link provided in the email. Sure, you could just not click it but the way the email is worded may have you convinced you are needed in court.

When I received the email, I thought it was strange that it was sent to my work email, considering I never use it for anything other than work-related matters. I racked my brain and, for a moment, thought that maybe this is how court summons were sent because I have never been summoned to court, knock on wood. Take a look at the email I received from 'Alison Solis'.

According to Alison, my hearing will be held next week at 3:30. However, she neglects to tell me where and what day, which is certainly comical. Keep in mind that all the blue numbers and words are clickable, which is intentional.

She conveniently provides a place to click if my attorney or myself are not able to appear it court, how kind. I'm pretty certain that if I really was being summoned to court, they would not give me the option of appearing.

Well, jokes on you Alison, one google search took me to plenty of other people questioning the legetmacy of this 'Court Summons' email.

The moral of the story, Alison Solis does not need to see you in court.
