Beware of Jury Scams

Please be aware that if you miss jury service, the court will never ask a law enforcement officer to collect a fine from you. If you receive a suspicious phone call of this nature, hang up, and promptly report the call to your local Sheriff’s Office.

Jury service scam calls frequently target senior citizens.

Do not buy a money card to pay a fine for missing jury service

If you received a juror summons and failed to appear, you may be contacted by the court. If this happens, a judge may ask you for an explanation for why you missed jury service. The court will never contact you and ask you to pay a fine with a money card to avoid being arrested for missing jury service. If you receive a call asking for payment of a fine for missing jury service, promptly contact your local Sheriff’s Office and report it.
Jury poster: DID YOU KNOW? Court officers will never ask for payment, a credit card or social security number for failure to appear for jury duty. Report suspicious activity to your local law enforcement agency.
