COURT ADVISES THE PUBLIC TO BE AWARE OF CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19 SCAMS

The COVID-19 pandemic is resulting in a surge of phishing scams and other cyber attacks. The Court is advising the public to exercise caution when opening any COVID-19 or pandemic-themed email or when responding to calls from anyone alleging to offer assistance. Examples include emails appearing to be from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, or other reputable authorities. Fake emails (also known as spoofs) generally purport to offer information and updates on the unfolding crisis from trusted authorities or companies to trick users to click links and attachments to malicious content.
