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 $400 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’ll 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 not call you to request money or your personal information. If you receive such a call, hang up immediately.

Please do not give out any personal information. You can contact this office for information at (904) 548-4607 and the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office at 904-225-5174 to report the incident.
