  • Telephone Scam about Jury Service Non-Attendance

    Tuesday, August 12, 2014— Manatee County Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller, R. B. “Chips” Shore wants the public to be aware of a telephone scam that has been received by  Manatee County residents.

    Several Manatee County residents have contacted the Clerk’s office after receiving a  call concerning “non-appearance for jury duty and/or service”, and the need to resolve the matter by making a payment for the penalty over the telephone.  The caller instructs the resident to obtain payment via a Green Dot payment card; requesting a call back with payment information and/or stays on the line while the resident travels to purchase a Green Dot payment card.  The caller has provided a name and telephone number.  These calls are not from the Clerk’s office and are not about jury service.

    If you should receive this type of call, hang up immediately.  Please feel free to contact our office for information and/or contact law enforcement to file a complaint.  Our office can provide accurate and up-to-date information concerning jury service.  Our main number is 941-749-1800.  The Clerk’s office does not call summoned jurors for payment for non-appearance.
