It has come to our attention that scammers are mimicking court and law enforcement phone numbers to con residents. The scammers use legitimate names of local law enforcement and court officials telling people they have missed a court date or failed to show up for jury duty, and are intimidating victims into paying bogus fines by threats of arrest. Legitimate court agencies will NEVER call or text you asking for any type of payment. Be aware, if anyone calls or texts you asking for payment by phone with a credit card, gift card, or wire transfer, or by paying at a kiosk, etc., it is a scam. If you have any questions about jury duty, court dates, or payments call the court directly.
