Default Notice to Appear Emails

I'm been getting a lot of junk mail that says it's a notice to appear in court. A zip file is attached. I got so many of these I was thinking on clicking the zip to see what's inside. But instead, I searched the Internet.

I've had phone calls from a "lawyers' office" in Tampa, which is local, threatening to send a law officer with a warrant .......

For phone calls, 800notes.org is an excellent site to look up phone numbers (not just 800) and see others' experience.

I won a free Carnival cruise this morning so I phone call from 520 308 6903 told me!

I've been getting those type of emails over the last few weeks too and I've just deleted them. Thanks for the link to info about them...'-}}

Hugh...do the phone calls you get leave a message or are you answering your phone? Due to my hearing loss, I rarely, if ever, answer my phone and I figure if a caller is legitimate, they will leave a message on my answering machine and I can call them back. If they don't then it's just scammers. Have fun on your cruise...'-}}

We get all sorts -- hidden identity; faked numbers that hide offshore callers hoping you will call back and generate astronomical call rates; etc etc

Mostly we don't answer unrecognized numbers unless local but since we have family that is scattered we sometimes slip up.

This last one I answered because I'm expecting call backs from two groups dealing with my car being rear ended and they've gone on my call block list -- nice to be able to do it via my PC since the phone service is over the cable internet connection.

You'd have to pay me to go on a Carnival .... unless it were Cunard or HAL which is unlikely! I did sit through a 4 hour sales session for condos once when I lived in the UK -- I forget now what I came away with except a headache but it was fun stone walling their requests for my financial background ......

Yeah...I do like have callerid but it's so often very misleading. Verizon's blocking options are virtually useless and I've considered buying a call blocker but haven't gotten around to it as the highly rated one is $99 and I'm not annoyed $99 worth...'-}}

LOL!!! I've been on a Cunard ship--can't remember the name but it was a cruise to see the long eclipse of the sun off the coast of Africa many years ago. Don't know HAL at all...

HAL still retains its Dutch origins although I've encountered non-Dutch Captains! The cabin staff are mostly Indonesian and very good at looking after you ..... with a sense of fun with the towel animals they make most nights ... and the chocolate on the pillows.

The Lido buffet food is good to with wonderful Egg Benedict at breakfast including made with lashings of Smoked Salmon .... lunch display often includes smoked salmon/gravlax/shrimp .......

One luxury restaurant, the Pinnacle, which has some really high class items and with out repeat cruise rating we get 50% off the fixed fee so it's not exorbitant ....

And it's no longer an old fogies refuge although we were on one cruise where a passenger and her family celebrated her 100th birthday.
