BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The Ward County sheriff’s office is warning residents about an Internet scam.

Authorities say several citizens throughout Ward County have been contacting North Central District Court officials, saying they have been contacted by email telling them they must appear in court or a judge will hold a hearing without them.

Authorities say the bogus email then instructs the recipient to open an attachment to the email.

Authorities say the North Central District Court does not send out emails with attachments.
