State Judiciary Warns of Phone Scam
The Judiciary issued a notice warning the public of the scam on Thursday afternoon.
A caller is reportedly calling residents notifying them that their licenses has been suspended as a result of unpaid traffic citations. The caller asks for the individual’s credit card number to pay for the citations in order to remove the suspension.
The caller’s phone number may appear as “blocked” caller ID.
According to the Judiciary, the calls are not coming from them and residents should not provide personal information or a credit card number to callers claiming to be from the courts.
If you have received a phone call and believe it may be a scam, call the Judiciary Communications and Community Relations office by phone at (808) 539-4909 or by e-mail at [email protected].
The scam can also be reported on the Court’s website.
