Warning of a phone scam locally. Humboldt County Superior Court has recently received several calls from the public notifying us that they have received calls from persons identifying themselves as court employees and demanding payment for a fine, “’by the end of the day to avoid a much larger claim amount in court.’” Some callers have actually referenced Social Security numbers and other accurate personal information.
Court staff mails all correspondence to the public, which includes case information, upcoming court dates, including fine information, and do not call parties and request payments over the phone, Social Security numbers, or other personal information. The Clerk’s Office phone number is (707) 445-7256 and is open to the public from 9 am – 2 pm. If you have any questions or concerns related to your case, please contact them during business hours.
