    What is this? I got an email to my twitter bot support email:

    Subject: Notice to Appear in Court

    Email: Notice to Appear,

    You have to appear in the Court on the October 22.
    Please, prepare all the documents relating to the case and bring them to Court on the specified date.
    Note: The case may be heard by the judge in your absence if you do not come.

    The copy of Court Notice is attached to this email.

    Regards,
    Andy Kirk,
    District Clerk.

    Attached file: 00998168.doc.js
    (probably a javascript file with codes, I don't even know what it is)

    ____

    Is someone trying to troll me?

    Someone is trying to get you to open a JS file, its malware don't open it. You don't get court summons via e-mail, you don't even get them via regular mail. You either get hand served or in some places certified mail where they verify your ID and have you sign for it and confirm that receipt with the sender.

    This email is just to get your main attention and force to open the Javascript.
    Body text of the email is also to get rid of anti-spam software.

    This is similar to one i got that said i was being prosecuted for non payment of UK council tax which is a criminal offence in the UK, i was to be taken to court but first had to fill out the attached form, sadly they didn't add my name to the letter - a dear sir didn't convince me to open it and the fact i pay my by direct debit ruined it for them, i binned it.

    Court correspondence is usually very long you want to vomit after reading. This isn't one of them.

    That email is fake.If it is a real summons to court they don't send through email.They send it to you in person.This is called social engineering attack to make open malware.

    In the U.S., you will NEVER, EVER get an email summons. All summons must be delivered in person - to prevent the person summoned from saying they never received it. I believe in some local cases, it can also be delivered by certified mail.
