Public Alert: New Juror Scam Seeks Personal Data


A new juror scam email, which fraudulently seeks personal information that could aid identity theft, has been reported in at least 14 federal court districts.


According to the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, citizens received emails claiming they had been selected for jury service and demanding that they return a form with such information as Social Security and driver's license numbers, date of birth, cell phone number, and mother's maiden name.


According to the email, anyone who failed to provide the information would be ordered to court to explain their failure, and could face fines and jail time. The email also falsely claimed that it was affiliated with eJuror, an online registration program used in about 80 U.S. court districts.

Warning! Arrest Warrant Scam
June 6 2014

Please be aware that members of the public from across the country have reported receiving fake warrants by fax or email saying a federal law enforcement officer or an attorney for the government wants to arrest them on charges such as money laundering, bank fraud, or missed jury duty. To avoid arrest, the warrant says, send money. Do not respond to such requests. It’s a scam.

Typically, recipients are instructed to call a number to get a “settlement” or to wire money to avoid arrest.The warrant is phony. A valid warrant would not be served by fax or e-mail. It would be served in person by a U.S. Marshal or other law enforcement officer.

Anyone receiving a fake arrest warrant should contact the FBI or the district U.S. Marshals Office. If there is any question regarding the authenticity of a warrant, contact the your district court. Do not rely on the contact information Anyone demanding or obtaining money or anything of value while impersonating an officer or employee of the United States may be fined and/or imprisoned up to three years.
