SCAM ALERT

It has come to the Court’s attention that members of the community have been receiving fraudulent phone calls disguised as either Monterey County Superior Court or Law Enforcement staff advising recipients that they are in contempt of court for failure to appear, report, or respond and that these actions are a “class E misdemeanor”. These people threaten arrests if fines are not paid. This is referred to as “spoofing” and occurs when an individual deliberately falsifies information to disguise their identity and is often used to attempt to trick someone into giving away valuable personal or financial information or to pay money. Some individuals have also reported that they have had people come to their homes representing themselves as court staff. Although these calls and personal visits can be concerning, please be aware that court staff never calls or visits members of the public to advise them of a lawsuit against them, demand payment, or threaten arrest. The Court communicates by mail and correspondence will always include case information, future court dates, and fine information if applicable. If you receive a personal visit, phone call or email from someone demanding payment for a court fine or warrant, you should immediately report it to your local law enforcement agency. If you have questions or concerns related to your case, please contact the clerk’s office at (831) 775-5400 Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Additionally, please report any and all fraudulent behavior to the Federal Communications Commission and filing a claim. For information on Spoofing, visit the FCC’s website to learn more.

ALERTA DE ESTAFA

Se ha informado al Tribunal de que miembros de la comunidad han estado recibiendo llamadas telefónicas fraudulentas en las que se hacen pasar por personal del Tribunal Superior del Condado de Monterey o agentes de la policía, informando a los destinatarios de que están en desacato ante el Tribunal por falta de comparecencia, asistencia o respuesta, y que estas acciones constituyen un "Delito Menor de Clase E.” Estas personas que llaman amenazan con arresto si no se pagan las multas. Estas llamadas se denominan "fraudulentas" y se dan cuando la persona que llama falsifica información deliberadamente para ocultar su identidad y, a menudo, se realizan a fin de intentar engañar a alguien para que brinde información personal o financiera valiosa o que pague dinero. Aunque estas llamadas pueden ser preocupantes, por favor, tenga muy en cuenta que ni el personal del Tribunal ni la policía llaman por teléfono a miembros de la comunidad para notificarles de una demanda en su contra, exigir un pago o amenazar con arrestarles. El Tribunal se comunica por correo y la correspondencia siempre incluye información del caso, fechas de próximas citas y datos sobre multas cuando corresponde. Si recibe una llamada telefónica o un correo electrónico de alguien que exige el pago de una multa u orden judicial, debe comunicárselo inmediatamente a la policía del condado. Si tiene preguntas o inquietudes relacionadas con su caso, por favor, comuníquese con la oficina administrativa llamando al (831) 775-5400 de lunes a viernes de 8:00 a.m. a 4:00 p.m. Asimismo, haga el favor de informar de cualquier fraude a la Comisión Federal de Comunicaciones haciendo clic aquí y presentando su reclamación. Para obtener más información sobre fraudes, visite el sitio de web de la FCC.

ALERT 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.
