Maine Judicial Branch Warns about Court-related Scam Calls

Date: 7/1/2022

The Maine Judicial Branch is warning people today about scam calls falsely claiming to come from law enforcement demanding that the recipient pay money to clear an "outstanding warrant" for purportedly having missed a court date.

Judicial Branch personnel and law enforcement never call and request personal or financial information or money over the telephone or threaten recipients who don't comply.

Maine people are advised to be very cautious in responding to such calls. Never send money or provide personal or financial information in response to a telephone call or email unless you have verified the identity of the caller independently.
