Sheriff's Office Cautions Residents About Jury Duty Scam


Scammers, identifying themselves as deputy sheriffs, are calling residents of Fairfax County and surrounding jurisdictions, claiming that the resident failed to appear for jury duty and must pay a court fee to avoid arrest. The Fairfax County Sheriff’s Office is in no way associated with this scam. Sheriff’s deputies will NOT call you asking for money nor threatening you with arrest.

If you receive a threatening phone call related to jury duty, please hang up immediately. Do NOT give out personal information such as your Social Security number, bank account or credit card numbers, passwords or any other identifying information. Regularly monitor all of your monetary accounts and always use strong passwords.
