Jury Duty scam hits county
Carolyn Timmann, Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller for Martin County, warns residents of a recent telephone scam plaguing Martin County residents as well as other Floridians.
Scammers are telephoning residents and claiming that they owe a large fine or face criminal charges for failing to appear for jury service. The callers are stating that the resident's name appears on a website listing of jurors who have not appeared for service, but they can clear their name by paying a $500 fine. The calls are originating from the 704 area code.
Clerk Timmann requests that anyone who receives this type of call to please gather as much information as possible from the caller and relay the information to the Clerk's office at (772) 288-5736 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Further, anyone who has provided these scammers with any personal information or sent money in response to a call should call local law enforcement immediately.
