Residents Beware of Jury Duty Scam

Press release website

Loudoun County, VA (May 11, 2023) – Gary M. Clemens, the Clerk of the Circuit Court, and Mike Chapman, Loudoun County Sheriff, are urging all Loudoun residents to be aware of what may be a new jury duty scam. 

The scam may include a telephone call from an individual claiming to be a law enforcement officer or court employee notifying the resident of a failure to appear for jury duty, then demanding payment to avoid arrest.

Sheriff’s deputies, law enforcement officers, and court employees will never call Loudoun residents to advise them of a failure to report for jury duty, nor of an imminent arrest or fine. Rather, any resident who fails to report for scheduled jury duty should expect to receive an official written notice from the Circuit Court with detailed instructions on what actions should be taken.

“Scammers try to scare citizens into paying them money for reasons that are fabricated,” said Gary Clemens. “My office is determined to inform the public about scams like this and protect the integrity of the jury system in Loudoun County,” he added. 

“The best recourse for a citizen who gets a call like this is to write down their caller ID number and notify the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) as soon as possible,” said Sheriff Chapman. LCSO routinely investigates telephone, email, and other scams for evidence of fraud.
