Have you received a call from someone who claims to be a Clerk of the Circuit Court & Comptroller’s office employee? Our office periodically issues alerts when we've been made aware of schemes where people impersonate Clerk employees in order to get others to send money or disclose personal information, such as their Social Security number or bank account numbers.
Clerk’s office employees do not call people to demand payment to avoid being served with a court warrant, summons or subpoena.
If you receive a call and you are unsure about it, do not provide any personal information. Write down as much information as you can about the call and contact the Clerk’s office at (352) 341-6424.
