Jury Duty Scam Alert

Jury Duty Scam Alert

The Court or the Clerk will never call or email residents to request payment for missing jury duty. The missed jury duty scam has been around for years. Usually, the caller pretends to be a judge, law enforcement officer, state attorney or a deputy clerk saying that you failed to show for jury duty. Often the phone number will appear to come from the Clerk or a law enforcement agency's main line. The scammer tells you a fine was imposed and if you don't pay it, a warrant will be issued for your arrest. To resolve the problem, they may ask for your bank account number, or suggest purchasing a prepaid debit card number and providing the numbers on the back of the card, or ask for personal information such as your social security number. Please do not do this!

The Court and Clerk’s Office does not call or email residents to request payment for missing jury duty. We will also never request payment via any sort of prepaid debit card. To learn more about other types of common scams, visit the Duval County Clerk’s  Scam Alert page.
