The United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island is aware of periodic juror scams where individuals claiming to be representatives of the United States District Court or law enforcement attempt to acquire personal information (Social Security Numbers, dates of birth, etc.) or payment of fines or fees through emails or over the phone. The U.S. District Court for the District of Rhode Island currently sends all requests to complete a juror qualification questionnaire and summons for jury service by U.S. Mail. If you receive a jury-related communication that you believe to be fraudulent or questionable, please contact the United States District Court Jury Office at (401) 752-7232.
