Warning - Jury Scam

Members of the public are not contacted initially by email or phone for jury service. Perspective jurors first receive an official court mailing— never a phone call or email— which may direct them to an online questionnaire. Please do not provide this type of information to anyone claiming to be associated with the federal courts. More information is available here.
