Judicial Branch issues warning about phone scam
CONCORD, NH – The NH Judicial Branch is alerting the public that the Courts are being impersonated by a scamming group targeting parties to small claim cases and other litigants.
The NH Judicial Branch reports that the callers have altered their Caller ID information to reflect the Judicial Branch Call Center phone number (1-855-212-1234) in order to appear legitimate. Scammers use many tactics to sound and appear credible. They sometimes provide information like names of employees, judges, and courthouse addresses.
During these calls, scammers attempt to collect payment on small claim judgments, fines or other offenses.
