Maine Courts Issue Scam Warning

Date: 6/29/2021

The Maine Judicial Branch is issuing a warning today about scam calls claiming to come from a Cumberland County courthouse telephone number. These scam calls, sometimes referred to as 'spoofing,' are when a caller deliberately falsifies the information that appears on a recipient's caller ID in an attempt to disguise their identity.

The Judicial Branch reminds the public that no one should provide personal or financial information in response to a telephone call. Maine courts do not call and request personal information over the telephone.
