Gallatin County Clerk of District Court's Office Warns of Jury Duty Phone Scam

The Gallatin County Clerk of District Court's Office and local law enforcement want to alert the public about a telephone scam occurring in our area.

The scammer calls pretending to be a deputy sheriff demanding payment for failure to comply with jury duty. The Clerk of District Court's Office and law enforcement will never call jurors to demand payment for failure to report for jury duty or failure to respond to a summons for jury duty.

The callers can sound very convincing. This week, the Clerk of District Court's Office was even mailed two pre-paid gift cards totaling $600 from a person who was scammed in this method.

If you receive a call like this, please alert law enforcement.

For any questions about jury duty with Gallatin County District Court, please call the clerk's office at 406-582-2165 or visit the Clerk of District Court's page at gallatin.mt.gov.
