UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
District of Utah
Honorable Ted Stewart, Chief Judge | D. Mark Jones, Clerk
JURY DUTY SCAMS
If you have received a phone call or email asking you to provide personal information and/or send payment to avoid arrest or other penalty, it is a scam.
The Court will NOT do any of the following:
Scammers, claiming to be an officer or attorney of the U.S. government, have been contacting citizens and demanding payment of money or verification of personal information in order for the subject of the scam to avoid arrest. Scammers have also been sending official-looking jury forms via email to citizens that ask for personal information (phishing). Calls and emails such as these are scams. Such emails may contain Trojan horses or viruses.
What Can You Do?
If you believe that you have been the victim of fraud or have received a scam phone call, phishing e-mail, or fax, contact your local police or sheriff department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or the United States Marshals Service.
If you have any concerns about a communication that purports to be from the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah, contact us at 801-524-6285. More information about jury duty scams, including a video, is available on the U.S. Courts website.
