A person is contacting individuals informing them of pending subpoenas requiring their appearance or telling them of criminal charges in order to direct them to pay bail money using a credit card or public virtual currency machines or kiosks. Oftentimes, the calls are sophisticated enough to use phone numbers or names of court employees and judges. Sometimes the caller may know some of your personal identifiers.


This is a scam.


If you receive such communications, please do not provide the caller with any financial or personal information and notify the clerk's office at 207-780-3356. The clerk’s office will share any information provided to federal law enforcement for investigation.
