Re: US Department of Justice Victim Notification System

It sounds like messages I have received in the past but I have not seen these for a while.

I used to get these periodically - usually in clusters of 3 or 4. Those that I still have came from Tina Sutter 
fedemail () vns usdoj gov<mailto:fedemail () vns usdoj gov>.  However,

The last ones came from the USDOJ (same email address), Victim Notification System Call Center, and mentioned changes 
coming on 10/17/2013.

I did follow up and find out they are legit.  Apparently our users were spammed or phished a while back and we were 
named as victims in the scams.  The cases are now being resolved through the courts.  I never was able to find out more 
info - like how do I recover (or file for) damages ?;-)

We received a notification from the DOJ
RE:  United States v. Defendant(s) Liu Guang Ming, Amir A. Shah,  I20, Inc., Osmaan Shah, Paul Zucker
Case Number 2004R01026 and Court Docket Number 09-CR-00141

Has anyone else seen this?  It looks to be a case of spamming that harvested addresses from over 2000 colleges and 
universities.
