Warning Against Phone Calls and Emails About Jury Service

The court sends summoned jurors a courtesy reminder telephone call about their upcoming service shortly before that service begins. The court will never:

  • Contact citizens by email or telephone asking for personal information such as driver's license numbers ;
  • Demand payment by email or by phone;
  • Make phone calls threatening prosecution for failing to comply with a jury summons.

In various parts of the United States including Northern California, citizens are being fraudulently targeted with phone calls and/or email messages purporting to be from jury administrators seeking payment or asking them to divulge personal information that could lead to identity theft. Please do not hesitate to contact the jury office about anything that makes you suspicious. View more information on the website of the United States Courts (www.uscourts.gov ...).
