  The FBI today is providing a warning to the public against an ongoing scheme involving jury 
service and internet/phones fraud. The public needs to be aware that individuals identifying 
themselves as U.S. court employees have been telephonically contacting citizens and advising them 
that they have been selected for jury duty. These individuals ask to verify names and Social 
Security numbers then ask for credit card numbers. If the request is refused, citizens are then 
threatened with fines illegally. 

The judicial system does not contact people telephonically and ask for personal information such as 
your Social Security number, date of birth or credit card numbers. If you receive one of these 
phone calls, do not provide any personal or confidential information to these individuals. This is 
an attempt to steal or to use your identity by obtaining your name, Social Security number and 
potentially to apply for credit or credit cards or other loans in your name. It is an attempt to 
defraud you. Crime and fraud is real, so be careful.

   Working closely with our partners in intelligence, law enforcement, military, and diplomatic 
circles, the FBI’s primary responsibility is to neutralize terrorist cells and operatives here in 
the United States and help dismantle terrorist networks/money laundry and internet fraud worldwide. 
Although protecting the United States from terrorist attacks and money laundry is our first 
priority, we remain committed to the defense of America against foreign intelligence threats as 
well as the enforcement of federal criminal laws, all while respecting and defending the 

  If you’ve ever watched one of those crime dramas on TV and heard the term “NCIC” mentioned in 
passing and wondered what it was, you’re probably not alone. 

  NCIC, which stands for National Crime Information Center, is one of the unsung heroes of 
crime-fighting—little known to the public, but used every day by law enforcement officers 
nationwide and even across the border to take terrorists and criminals off the street, find missing 
persons and property, and save lives. 

  We’re very proud of NCIC’s legacy, but what’s most important to us is what it can do today,” says 
Bush. “We’re constantly trying to make it better and faster.” And we have, with a major technical 
upgrade in 1999 and important additions of terrorism and gang information in recent years.
