Fake distraint e-mails haunt Czech internet

Numerous fake distraint e-mails have been reported around the web lately. Similar to a case of email scams from July, which also demanded several thousand crown from their victims.

The distrainer’s office have received hundreds of complaints and recommend not to open any attachments from such emails and not to pay any fines since these email demands are made up.  These internet scams are dangerous, yet you can easily spot them.

Scam emails are often full of grammatical errors or even logical mistakes such as incomplete addresses or repeating bank account numbers. One way of find out legitimacy is checking the signature of the sender. But perhaps the best way to know is, as the Distrainers’ Office told the public, that they don’t send distraint orders via email.
