Counterfeit courts are private for-profit companies attempting to impersonate legitimate law enforcement and judicial institutions. It is important to be able to identify these fraudulent entities to protect yourself from potential scams or unlawful activities.

Checking Court Documents

One way to identify counterfeit courts is by carefully examining court documents. Look for any grammatical errors or the use of foreign languages. Legitimate courts SHOULD use proper grammar and communicate in the official language of the country where they are located. If you come across documents with multiple grammatical errors or the use of unfamiliar languages, it could be a red flag.

Signage and Physical Indicators

Another method to spot counterfeit courts and police stations is by checking the signage and physical indicators.

In addition, be cautious of the “4 corner rule” in boxing. Legitimate court documents often have specific formatting requirements, known as the 4 corner rule, which dictate where certain information should be placed on the page. If you notice that the documents deviate from this rule, it could indicate that they are counterfeit.

Suspicious Activity

If you suspect that a court may be counterfeit, it is important to contact ‘them’ in the first instance by way of DSAR – Data Subject Access request.
