Jury Duty Scam

Share

Scammers know that fear results in action. Receiving information from the government can be a scary thing, especially if legal action is being threatened against you. It’s important to recognize that phone calls and emails are not legitimate sources of information when requesting that you need to be available for jury duty.

Jury duty scammers are those who send prosecution threats through messaging channels for failing to comply with jury service. In these threats, scammers will pressure you to provide your confidential information or be subject to face fines and jail time if you do not comply. Moving forward with providing this information may result in you potentially falling victim to identity theft and/or fraud.

If you receive a call or email like this, you should immediately report it to the Clerk of Courts Office of the U.S. District Court in your area. As a reminder, federal courts do not require you to provide sensitive information over the phone or via email. Rather, you will likely be contacted through the U.S. mail if you are selected by a federal court to participate in jury duty. While jury duty is a civic responsibility and important to take seriously, it’s a crime for one to pose as a federal court official. Always be sure to report any suspicious activity.

For any questions or concerns involving scams or fraud, please call us at 800.666.8811 or visit one of our retail center locations for assistance.
