    You need to deal with this, do not ignore it.

    Presumably you know what debt this relates to?

    Go to the court with the letter - you should find out all you need to know.

    Contact the court directly, don't use number in letter. See what they have

    Have you noticed the e mail address?
    I would expect it to say Northampton not what is written?

    1. Are you expecting this? Do you owe money?

    2. Is the email address really as you wrote it or is that a typo?
    3. What is the phone number? Does it correspond to the courts number you'd find on google?
    Please dont criticise my spelling. It's excellent. Its my typing that's bad.

    No way would the court send a letter to a defendant asking them to come in, why not just send them the correspondence?.

    Phone the number at https://courttribunalfinder.service.gov.uk/courts/northampton-crown-county-and-family-court and find out from the horse's mouth if this is legitimate.

    Do not send an email, phone them

    I think that there is a high probability that this letter originated from Cabot Financial to get you to contact them.

    Not saying you're wrong but that would be sailing VERY close to the wind at best.

    justice.gov.uk is the email domain for HMCTS/MoJ so it looks legit enough to me.

    As previously mentioned it will be something for personal service on you OP.

    You have the cae number, call the Northampton CC confirm your identity and they will tell you if it's a Warrant or AoE application.
