State Supreme Court Warns Residents Of Various Email, Phone Scams

The State Supreme Court is warning Florida residents of phone and email scams that hope to scam people into paying money. 

A news release sent Friday says the scams appear to heavily target those with limited English-language skills, the elderly, health-care workers and relatives of people who recently died.

Court officials are advising state courts in Florida to not make initial contact with individuals via email or phone to request a court appearance or pay money. For these things, people should either be told in person or through regular-delivery mail.

One scam emails health care workers about a "Health Care Service Violation." 

A separate phone scam targets Spanish speakers in South Florida. 

A third involves heirs of an estate who must pay an upfront "tax" to receive payment.
