Juror Warrant Telephone Scam

Several Monterey County residents have recently reported receiving a phone call from an individual claiming to be a law enforcement officer asking for payment to clear up a warrant that had been issued because the resident did not appear for jury service. These calls are fraudulent and have no connection to the Monterey County Superior Court. Anyone receiving a phone call from someone demanding payment for an outstanding warrant should report it immediately as a crime to their local law enforcement agency.

Also, please note that Superior Court Jury Services personnel do not ask past, current, or prospective jurors for information regarding credit card numbers, bank account information, or Social Security numbers. Please do not provide this type of information to anyone claiming to be associated with Jury Services.
