Don’t get scammed — there is a scam email pretending to be from your friendly federal district court. It states that you have been selected for jury duty in federal court, and that you have to provide them with lots of information, like your social security number, your driver’s license, mother’s maiden name, and the like.
While federal courts do call people for jury duty, they do NOT request private information like that in an email.
Lawyers like us respect those who serve on juries. While it is an imposition, our system of justice needs the common sense of jury members. Pretending to be a jury summons to get private financial information is wrong, and we are happy to warn about it.
