The public should be aware of a scam that is occurring across the nation.
You may receive a telephone call or text message notifying you that you have missed jury duty and that you should immediately call the telephone number provided. The text further directs the recipient to call the number to pay a fine. THIS COMMUNICATION IS A BOGUS NOTICE.
No one affiliated with the Gwinnett Judicial Circuit Clerk of Superior Court’s office, or with the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office sends out texts or e-mail messages to jurors of this nature. We would contact jurors via telephone but when we do, the respective staff member will identify themselves. Our automatic telephonic messaging system provides notices to jurors concerning status of cases and appearances. If you are asked to call the office, the telephone number provided will be the main Gwinnett County switchboard number 770.822.8000.
