JURY SCAM ALERT **
Kirkland Municipal Court would like to alert our residents to
jury duty scams that are becoming more prevalent across the country
and around Washington. We greatly value our citizens
willing to serve on jury duty and are very concerned that you might
become victims of a scam artist out to take your money, and using
the name of the court to do so. Please be aware that citizens
in several Washington Counties as well as around the country have
lost large sums of money. Here is how it usually
happens: an individual calls or e-mails and claims that you
have missed jury duty. They indicate, as a result, a warrant
has been issued for your arrest and/or that the Sheriff is en route
to arrest you, and demand payment, a credit card number, or a
social security number for failure to appear for jury duty.
Employees of Kirkland Municipal Court will never ask for payment
over the phone or by e-mail. Court officials will also never
ask for you to purchase a pre-paid card, provide cash or a check to
pay for failure to appear for jury duty. Never give out
personal information by phone or e-mail. Please report any
suspicious activity of this kind to your local law enforcement
agency. If you have questions about jury duty or a court
appearance, please call Kirkland Municipal Court at
