DC Courts Telephone Scam - Beware!

BEWARE OF TELEPHONE SCAM: The DC Courts do NOT use telephone calls to seek payments
It has come to our attention that the DC Superior Court name is being used in a telephone scam. DC-area residents are receiving robo calls telling them they owe money on an outstanding court matter and they are told to call 1-844-582-0100 and then press option 5 to make a payment to clear up the matter. What differentiates these calls from other scams is that the caller ID system has been manipulated and shows a DC Court-issued telephone number on the caller ID display. Please be advised that the District of Columbia Courts never solicit payments through telephone. All official court correspondence is processed through the U.S. Postal Service. Do not respond to these telephone calls.
