Kansans targeted by court scams

Kansas residents who receive unusual phone calls or emails from a person claiming to be affiliated with a Kansas court need to be aware they might be the target of a scam.

 

In one scam, residents report they received a phone call from someone claiming to be affiliated with a local court or sheriff’s office who demands the person pay a fine for failing to report for jury duty. Anyone who receives a call of this type should hang up immediately and report it to local law enforcement.

 

In another scam, residents report receiving an email from a Kansas court that encourages them to click on a link to confirm a court complaint was filed. It is believed the link is used to deliver a virus onto the recipient’s computer when it is clicked. Anyone who receives an email of this type should delete it immediately.

 

A person who receives an unusual communication that does not fit the profile of either of these scams can contact a local court official to confirm whether it’s valid.
