Hi Strat - me too and at the same date and time!
http://www.scotcourt.gov.uk has information on this nasty little scam.
Scottish Courts are now asking recipients of this email to report it to their ISP - however I had deleted mine before they had posted this request.
See you in court!

The email attachment apparently contained a backdoor.win32.androm.BMLS file.

A prime example of how clued up the Courts Service is when it comes to things technical...

I agree - I didn't think any ISP would be interested - it's up to us not to fall for these scams.

Sneaky way of getting people to open a zip file.  Have not seen that one before.

Was about to post a warning when I saw this thread.

Re: Now what have I done?

The USA a year or two back did decide that legal documents etc could be served by email.
Seeing as we're years behind the states with our legal processes there is no way legal stuff will be served by email in this country for at least a decade.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
