Starting the week of January 15, 2018, the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department has taken several complaints regarding another SCAM in our area. People are receiving calls from an unknown person stating they are from the Waukesha County Clerk of Courts or the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department. The person goes on to say that you owe money for failing to appear for jury duty. They are asking for your credit card information or stating you must purchase gift cards to pay off your fine owed for missing jury duty. If you do not answer, the person leaves a message advising you to call 262-408-6373. This is NOT a valid number for the Waukesha County Clerk of Courts or the Waukesha County Sheriff’s Department. Please DO NOT call them back.
As always, please DO NOT give out your personal information or your credit card information over the phone to anyone unless you can verify who he or she is.
