JURY SERVICE SCAM ALERT:  
In various parts of the United States, citizens are being targeted by phone calls and emails threatening them with prosecution for failing to comply with jury service in federal or state courts.   In the calls and emails, recipients are pressured to provide confidential data, potentially leading to identify theft and fraud.  These calls and emails, which threaten recipients with fines and jail time if they do not comply, are fraudulent and are not connected with the courts.  Courts do not require anyone to provide any sensitive information in a telephone call or email.  Most contact between a court and a prospective juror will be through the U.S. mail, and any phone contact by real court officials will not include requests for Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, or any other sensitive information.  
Jury duty is a vital civic responsibility and should be taken seriously by all citizens.  However, it is a crime for anyone to falsely represent himself or herself as a court official.  The judiciary takes seriously such an offense.
Persons receiving such a telephone call or email should not provide the requested information and should notify the Clerk of Court office in your area.
You may contact our office or Colonel Carl Futch at the Glynn County Sheriff's Office at 912-554-7625 


SCAM ALERT INVOLVING PRE-PAID DEBIT CARDS AND A JURY SUBPOENA
The Clerk of Superior Court's office will NOT have anyone call you in regards to an outstanding warrant, nor ask you for pre-paid debit cards to pay for missing jury duty.  We will not call you asking you to appear at the courthouse for a signature analysis for a jury subpoena.  This is a SCAM. If you have any questions as to a validity of a claim, please contact the Clerk of Superior Court's office @ 912-554-7286 PRIOR to submitting any funds or contact the Glynn County Sheriff's Office at 912-554-7600.
