JURY SCAM ALERT

JURY SCAM ALERT

The public should be aware of a scam that is occurring across the nation.

The Superior Court Clerk’s office has received reports from citizens that had received calls stating, “This is Sgt. Gary Miller with the sheriff’s office and you were sent a jury summons and did not report for jury duty.”  From the reports I received, the caller states that my office sent out ninety jury summons and only a few jurors actually reported for jury duty.  He went on to say that the jury summons was sent for the October Term of court.  The caller actually reached relatives of the person he was trying to call.  He left a telephone number for a return call.

You may also receive a text message notifying you that you missed jury duty and the recipient must call the number and pay a fine.

No one affiliated with the Dade County Superior Court Clerk’s office would contact our jurors this way.  We would contact jurors via telephone, but, when we do, the respective staff member will identify themselves.  Our automatic telephonic messaging system provides notices to jurors concerning status of cases and appearances.  If you are asked to call the office, the telephone number will be the main Dade County Superior Court Clerk’s office number 706-657-4778.

If anyone has any questions concerning jury duty please contact Kathy Page, Clerk of Superior & Juvenile Court at 706-657-4778.
