Jury Duty

JURY DUTY SCAM

Scammers have been making calls to Travis County residents claiming to be a Sergeant or Lieutenant with the Travis County Sheriff’s Office or even a Judge with the District Courts (They use the accurate name of a judge or rank of the officers.) The scammer aggressively claims the resident has failed to show up for jury duty and owes a fine that must be paid immediately in order to avoid being arrested.

The Travis County Sheriff’s Office or any Travis County Judges will never call residents regarding jury duty, nor with they ask for payment via wire transfer or gift cards. If you receive a suspicious phone call from someone demanding payment, do not hesitate to contact us at 512-854-9770 to verify the validity of that call before giving anyone money.

These scammers are diligently being pursued by national law enforcement agencies.
