The St. Johns County Clerk of Courts is warning against a jury duty scam.  It goes something like this:  you get a phone call from somebody posing as a court employee informing you that you have missed jury duty, and they ask you for personal information for verification.  They may even say that a warrant has been issued for your arrest. It is better to serve jury duty than to serve a scammer.  Do not provide your personal information to a scammer. They call looking for information like your Social Security Number and date of birth, which they can use to steal your identity.  According to the St. Johns County Clerk of Courts website (http://www.clk.co.st-johns.fl.us/jury/jury.html), “Clerk’s Office employees within the Jury Management division never make such calls.”  The initial jury duty notifications as well as follow-up notices are sent via the US Postal Service.
