Gavel on a Judge's Bench

The City’s Municipal Court has learned of another phone scam that involves impersonating the Court’s staff. The caller is threatening and aggressive and demands payment for court fines or to keep the court from serving a warrant. Please know that while the court may call you, they will not threaten you and demand payment. If you receive a call from someone that appears to be with the Municipal Court, you can confirm it is legitimate by calling back using the main court phone number or stop by the court’s reception area and talk with someone in person.
