Scammers are routinely calling people saying they have missed a court date, missed a jury summons, they have a warrant, or they owe fines.

They will even use real names of high ranking members of the Sheriff’s Office or Judges, names that they think the public will recognize. The caller will at times provide a phone number to call back with a recording saying it’s the Sheriff’s Office.

Any legitimate issues you would have involving a missed court date or jury summons will require you to show up in person. No law enforcement agency will collect money over the phone for any issue.
