Phishing Alert: Lawsuit Phone Scam

Scam phone calls deliver an automated lawsuit threat.

We've had reports from our community that match this scam reported by the University of Pittsburgh:

....a new phishing phone scam that has been received by members of the University community. The scam uses an automated voice message that instructs you to call a phone number before a lawsuit is filed against you with the county courthouse.
The following is a transcript of the fraudulent phone scam. If you receive this message (or any message similar to it), delete the voice message without replying or calling back the number. 
We are calling you about a lawsuit, which has been filed on your name. So before we go with legal matter and send this case to the local county courthouse, kindly call us back on our number which is [number removed]. Thank you and goodbye.
