Public Alert: Scam Emails

Please Note: Collin County is aware of an email scam in which emails purporting to come from the court system are infecting recipients computers with viruses. These emails, instructing recipients to report on a specified date and time, also instruct recipients to review an attached document for case information. When the attachment or links in the email are opened, a virus may be launched.

Unless you are actively involved in a Collin County case or have been summoned for jury duty and have consented to receive emails from the court or jury services, you generally will not receive email communication. If you have any questions regarding such notice, please call the court or Jury Services to verify.
