Fraud Involving Jury Duty: The judicial system does not contact people
telephonically about jury service and ask for personal information such as your
Social Security number, date of birth or credit card numbers. There have been reports of individuals
contacting citizens in regards to jury duty and identifying themselves as court
employees. These individuals say they are calling to verify names and Social
Security numbers and then ask for credit card numbers, this could be an attempt
to defraud you. The Iowa Courts do not
contact people telephonically and ask for personal information as described above. If you receive such a call do not provide
any personal or confidential information to these individuals, you should
contact your local law enforcement agency or the Clerk of Court in your county.
