A new scam that arrives by email is posing as the State Security Forces and Bodies and the official Twitter account of the National Police has denied that they are real emails. “If you receive a message like this, directly to the trash”, they recommend to users.
The National Police warns that the message could also be arriving through SMS, although the image they have shared on social networks is that of a Gmail email. The subject name is ‘summons to court’, followed by a very long number and the date 2022 and the issuer would be the Judicial Police.
No, we do not communicate any type of complaint via email 📧 or SMS ✉

“Following a complaint against you. For more information, consult the pdf. You have 72 hours to contact us. If you do not, we will issue an international arrest warrant for your arrest,” they say in the message. As you can read, this is full spelling and grammatical errors.
Possibly, within the file attached to the email, there is malware that infiltrates the victim’s device. The National Police has not detailed more about the situation, so it is not known if there really is a Trojan or not. Another option would be for them to try to get the user to provide their data for fear of being arrested.
