This is the text of the email I received, it came from the address "Notice to Appear
The copy of the court notice is attached to this letter.
Please, read it thoroughly.
Clerk to the Court.
This email was scanned by VIPRE version 4.0.3904 when it was sent, using definitions version 28332
First of all, there was no attachment. Second, I tried seeing what the defenselawyerssanfrancisco.com domain actually hosts, that came up with a 404 error page, so that's a dead end. Doing a whois search on the domain didn't show up much either. It smelled fishy.
I did a google search on the email subject and that gave me definite results reporting it as a malware distribution email.
The email I received didn't come with any attachments, but the body of the email did explicitly refer to an attached document. Not sure whether my email server filtered that out of not, so I cannot confirm the contents of the attachment. In either case, I would not be recommending for anyone to open it, especially if it's an .exe file and you're on Windows.
