First Judicial District Court

Tribunal del Primer Distrito Judicial

English Español

Protect yourself from scams.

Protect yourself against identity theft.  Never give out personal information when you receive an unsolicited phone call.

As a rule, jury officers never ask for confidential information over the phone. Jury staff members generally correspond with prospective jurors via mail or email. There are certain situations such as, a Junior and Senior live at the same address and the summons does not specify which one that more information may be required. 

Sample Scenario:  You answer the ringing phone. The caller identifies himself/herself as an officer of the court. The caller states you failed to report for jury duty and that a warrant is out for your arrest. You say you never received a notice. The caller says no problem, it can be cleared up right now, but more information will be needed for "verification purposes" -- your birth date, social security number, maybe even a credit card number. Or the caller might say that if you give him/her that info to pay a "small fine," the warrant will be dropped.

You should hang up the phone and report the call to law enforcement, as it is a scam.
