Email Scam Alert – Email posing as Ethics Board & Idaho Supreme Court

It has come to our attention that another email scam is circulating. The email poses as the Ethics Board of the Idaho Supreme Court, claims that an ethics complaint has been filed against you, and requires you to click a link to respond to the complaint within 72 hours. If you receive an email that resembles the example below, it did not originate from Bar Counsel’s Office or the Idaho Supreme Court. DO NOT reply to the email or click on ANY links. Permanently delete the email immediately.

As a reminder, you can often times identify an email as a scam by looking at the sender’s email address. If you do not recognize the sender’s email address or think it may look suspicious, always err on the side of caution and do not click on any links or attachments included in the email.
