Telephone and Email Scam Alert
The Sacramento Superior Court is advising the public that telephone and email communications warning of a pending case or arrest warrant against an individual or demanding money or personal information may not be from the court or its authorized collection vendors.
Some of these fake communications made by email could contain an attachment or a link that may install a virus or other spyware on the computer. Other telephone communications make fraudulent demands to pay fines or fees or provide personal information, such as a Social Security number.
The public should be aware that such scams are occurring.
The Court uses vendors to collect on certain delinquent fees and fines. To confirm an inquiry about delinquent court-ordered debt, you can call GC Services at 1-800-333-8395, or (Spanish) 1-800-616-6007; or the Department of Revenue Recovery at 1-916-875-7500.
Anyone with questions about a suspicious communication that appears to be from Sacramento Superior Court should contact the court.
Jury Scam Alert
Past or prospective jurors are NEVER contacted by phone regarding failure to serve jury duty. All communication regarding failure to serve jury duty is done via U.S. mail. No court jury staff or Sacramento County Sheriff's staff ask past or prospective jurors to pay a fine or provide financial details including, credit card numbers, bank account, social security numbers or other personal information. Please do not provide this type of information to anyone.
If you receive a telephone call, from someone identifying himself or herself as a court employee or an employee of the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department regarding a failure to appear for jury service, THIS IS A SCAM. DO NOT PROVIDE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION, OR PAY THEM ANY MONEY!
If you are contacted, please call the Jury Commissioner's office at 916-874-7775.
