"Invalid Subpoenas Sent Via E-Mail"


Duame Morris: “Invalid Subpoenas Sent Via E-Mail“:

Thousands of company executives received e-mails mid-April that purported to be federal court subpoenas but instead appear to be part of a “phishing” scam to capture sensitive data. The invalid subpoenas: (a) bear the seal of the U.S. district court and docket numbers from real cases; (b) command an appearance before a grand jury; (c) identify the originating e-mail address as [email protected]; and (d) contain a link with an instruction to “download the entire document on this matter … and print it for your record.
