MORE RECENT REPORTS OF JURY SCAMS - Citizens continue to receive calls instructing them to pay money to avoid arrest for failing to respond to jury summonses.  THESE CALLS ARE HOAXES.  Court officials and law enforcement officials will never demand payment over the phone or via email.  Scammers may use the names of real law enforcement officials, court officials, and federal judges to make their calls sound legitimate.  Additionally, scammers may mask their phone numbers so that the name or number on your caller ID appears to be coming from a court or law enforcement agency.  Contact your local U.S. district clerk's office if you have been contacted by anyone demanding payment for failing to respond to a federal jury summons.
