MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- State court officials have issued a warning about an email scam that's made its way to Wisconsin.

Opening an email summoning you to appear in "the court of Washington" could compromise your computer. Officials say courts do not send summons by email.

Washington County circuit court clerk Theresa Russell tells the Journal Sentinel her office has received more than 100 calls from people who got the illegitimate email and wanted to check it out.

Any state court appearance can be checked online at the Wisconsin court system's website at wcca.wicourts.gov.
