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 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 on 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.
