Email Scam Alert

Posted on Feb 27, 2014 in Press Releases

The Hawaii State Judiciary continues to receive reports of email scams, in which emails purporting to come from Hawaii State Judiciary offices or staff are being sent to individuals worldwide. The most recent email scam claims to be from a bailiff and instructs the individual to vacate his or her premises and to click on a link for more information. When the individual clicked on the link, it reportedly crashed her computer.

Please do not click on the link or respond to these email scams. In general, the public will not be contacted by the Hawaii State Judiciary for official business by email and we do not summon people to court electronically. If you receive an email you are not sure about, please contact the Hawaii State Judiciary Public Affairs Office at or call (808) 539-4909.

For more information, contact the Communications and Community Relations Office at 808-539-4909 or via email at
