Don’t Be a Victim of Jury Duty Scams

Don’t Be a Victim of Jury Duty Scams:

  • Court workers don’t call to tell you missed jury duty. Rarely, you might receive a call about jury duty but only after you have mailed back your completed questionnaire
  • Simply never give out bank account, social security, or credit card numbers over the phone if you didn't initiate the call. Call back using a phone number you know is legitimate.
  • Examine your credit card and bank account statements every month. Look for charges you did not make. Immediately call the agency and challenge items you did not approve.
