Alert: further fake witness summons emails


It has come to the attention of the Crown Prosecution Service that emails have been received by members of the public this morning which falsely claim to be from the CPS. These emails include a summons to appear as a witness in court. The CPS understands a large number of these emails were sent this morning and follow similar emails which were sent last week.

The CPS does not email witnesses in order to summons them to court.

If you have received this email, please delete it and do not click on any of the links enclosed.
