Release Date: Thursday, March 03 2016, 01:30 PM

The AFP has received a large number of phone calls from the public in relation to an email purporting to be from the AFP, serving a subpoena upon the recipient. There are several links in the email.

The links in the email may be malicious and should not be clicked on.

The AFP does not issue subpoenas via email, and recommends that you delete the email from your inbox and from your deleted folder.

Any person who is concerned they may have responded to one of these emails, or clicked on the links, should report it through the ACORN or to SCAMwatch.
