Requests for Personal Information by Telephone: Identity Theft

Jurors should know that all requests by court staff for personal information will be made in writing and will never be requested by telephone. Nationally there have been several reported instances of persons posing as court employees requesting individuals divulge personal information under the guise that these individuals have been summoned for jury service. Newer scams have also included threats of arrest unless a fine is paid for any failure to show for jury duty.  If you should receive such a telephone call, do not disclose any personal information or pay any fine.
