Please be aware that a jury scam has resurfaced. Victims are falsely being told they missed jury duty and must pay a fine or face arrest. Callers posing as court employees are aggressively demanding payment of a fine, even though victims never received a jury summons.
The caller threatens the potential victim by saying they failed to show up for jury duty, and they will be arrested and possibly even spend several days in jail if they don’t pay money through a pre-paid debit card or credit card.
It is extremely important to remember that Clerk’s office employees will never call you to request money or your personal information. If you receive one of these calls or texts, make sure to write down as much information as you can about the call, and contact the Clerk's office as soon as possible.
For more information about jury duty, please visit our website or call (904) 548-4607.
Anyone who sent money because of one of these scams also is urged to contact local law enforcement.
You can contact the Nassau County Sheriff's Office at 904-225-5174; 904-548-4009; or toll-free 855-725-2630 to report the incident.
