Be Aware… Several citizens have recently reported that they have received telephone calls from a man claiming to be a Court employee in the Jury Services Department. The imposter, who falsely represents himself as a court employee, tells the citizens they have missed their jury duty and that a warrant is now out for their arrest. The impostor says that if they pay him hundreds of dollars, the matter would be resolved. The imposter may also ask for your personal information, request personal identity information; namely, their address and social security number.
The legitimate staff of the superior court do not call past or prospective jurors by telephone for financial information such as credit card, and bank accounts information or personal information like Social Security Numbers or to collect money from them.
