The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Oklahoma has alerted us that scammers are sending fraudulently produced official-looking, but fictitious, court documents (see attached example here) to people via email and asking them to call a number to resolve the issue. Some of the fake documents even purport to contain the signature of a federal judge. This is a scam in which criminals pretend to be members of law enforcement or government officials in an attempt to legitimize their efforts. Please remember that neither law enforcement officers nor the Court will ever reach out to you to demand money. If you ever have questions or concerns about documents you receive, please contact the government office that purportedly issued the document to verify its authenticity.
