The e-mail asks receivers to pay a fine for not turning up
The Courts Service is warning the public against a false, spam e-mail which tells people they must pay a fine for not showing up for jury service.
It says the e-mail is seeking personal details from recipients and is not from the Courts Service or the jury office.
"It is a false instrument - designed to gather details about the recipient", the Court Service says.
"The mail alleges the recipient has not answered a jury summon. It offers a means of answering this allegation. But answering this mail causes a second one to be forwarded seeking banking details for payment of a fine".
"Providing such information is a recipe for fraud, and has been reported to An Garda Síochana".
The Courts Service says it would never communicate in this manner, or seek bank details via an e-mail.
It adds that the return address is not one set up, or ever used by, the Courts Service.
An example of the false e-mail is below:
