Tulare County Superior Court Warns of Jury Scam
The Tulare County Superior Court is warning the public of a phone scam after receiving reports of calls received
requesting money for failing to appear for jury service.
The Tulare County Superior Court does not make contact, nor do we authorize any outside agency, to contact individuals
via telephone to collect fines for failing to appear for jury service. If you receive such a call, you are advised to hang up and
not provide the caller with any personal information.
