Zoom Instruction Sheet and Protocol
The 18th Judicial Circuit Court and Circuit Court Clerk are aware of a scam in which persons contact individuals through the Chat feature on Zoom during virtual court proceedings like the one you are about to join.
These persons ask for money in exchange for various services and do not provide the services. Some of these people claim to be attorneys, pretrial officers, or judges. The scammer may sound convincing and use real information about you or others and the associated court case.
Please be advised that neither the Court nor the Clerk will ever direct anyone to submit payment of any kind with Apple Pay, Facebook Messenger, Google Pay, PayPal, Samsung Pay, Venmo, Zelle, or any similar electronic payment service. If court fines or fees are owed, they can only be paid in person at the Clerk's office, electronically through the Clerk's website at https://18thjudicial.org/, or by mail.
Contact your local law enforcement agency if you believe you have been the victim of a scam.
