An internet scam is spreading across KELOLAND this week.
Midcontinent put a message on its Facebook page Thursday, warning customers of a scam email circulating the upper Midwest.
The subject line of the email is "Notice to Appear" and says you are required to make an appearance in District court.
Midco representatives say this email is part of a phishing scam, in which the sender requests information from the recipient. They can then access your computer and personal information.
There have also been reports an attachment to these emails contains a virus if opened.
Midcontinent would like to remind it's customers to never open emails or attachments from unknown sources.
