SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah State Courts issued a warning Monday about a nationwide email scam that urges recipients to appear in court for a case that doesn’t exist.

The scam email directs the recipient to open an email attachment or a web address that contains a computer virus when opened.

Anyone with questions about court appearances is urged to call the court directly. Phone numbers are available on the court’s website at or by calling (801) 578-3800.
