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.
