Email Scam
If you got an email claiming to be an official notice to appear in court or respond to a complaint, please DO NOT click on links or attachments in the email or reply to it. It may have a virus. Minnesota state courts send official notices only by U.S. mail, phone, or to registered users of eFile and eServe. Please contact us directly for questions about court cases or notices.
