Scam Alert

The Jury Services unit of the Superior Court of Alameda County does not call citizens to request payment for failing to appear for jury service.  California law does not permit citizens to pay a fine in lieu of jury service; a fine may be assessed, but the citizen would still be required to reschedule jury service for a later date. Please be advised that any requests for such information may be a scam. 

This notice provides guidance as to how to proceed if you think you are being targeted by this scam.
