Scammers impersonating courts for the purpose of stealing personal information are becoming increasingly prevalent. The Court wants the public to know that it will never ask for your Social Security number or other personal information over the phone or by e-mail. Nor will the Court ever send to you an unsolicited e-mail or e-mail attachment. Do not open any unexpected or unsolicited e-mail attachments because they likely contain malicious code designed to transmit personal information back to the scammer. If you are unsure about the validity of a communication purporting to be from the Court, please contact us. Contact local law enforcement if you have been the victim of a scam.
