For jurors

General information

Possible juror scams

Occasionally, court systems are seeing their names being used in scams in which fraudsters pose as court officials or law enforcement officers in an attempt to steal money, according to an article published in Stateline (external link), an online publication of The Pew Charitable Trusts. The federal court system has also published an article with suggestions (external link) on how to protect yourself from possible scams. The court would never ask for your personal financial information in regard to your jury service. If there is any question about the authenticity of a communication about jury duty, contact the applicable clerk of circuit court office.
