Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good afternoon. Yes, it was likely a scam. If you were required to appear, you would receive notice through the court or personally served. The clerk of court would not simply send an email to you, advising you need to appear. If you wanted to double check, you could also search your name through the clerk of courts website to see if anything appears or call the clerk directly, to confirm.
