Calls to collect jury duty fines are scams, Maryland court says

July 24, 2023

The federal court for the District of Maryland is warning citizens not to fall for false jury service claims from scam callers. Officials said these callers are impersonating court administrators, U.S. Marshals and state and federal law enforcement officers who claim victims will be hauled off to jail if they don’t pay a fine for missing jury duty. “The callers insisted that their victims arrange to meet them with cash or prepaid credit cards,” the court said in a news release.
