Cash, Money Orders or Credit Cards are accepted. No personal checks will be accepted. Persons not making payment arrangements face the possibility of warrants being issued for their arrest.
(June 06, 2014) The Northumberland County Prothonotary and Clerk of Courts wants to warn the public about a computer virus that comes in an email falsely claiming to be about a court case. The Prothonotary/Clerk of Courts has learned the email alerts recipients about an upcoming court case; however, the email is a scam, and opening any attachment or clicking on any link in the message triggers a malicious program that infects the recipient’s computer. The email is not from the courts nor is it about a court case.
If you receive an email with a subject line such as "Hearing of your case in Court" or "Notice to Appear in Court," the Judiciary's computer experts recommend the following:
--Do not open any attachments, click on any links, or unsubscribe. Doing so may install the malware/virus onto your computer.
--Delete the email.
The email appears to be coming from a variety of random sources. A sample of what is seen is as follows;
