FORT WORTH — The Tarrant County Clerk’s Office is warning citizens about a phone scam involving false lawsuits.

According to a press release, the caller identifies himself/herself as a court clerk and informs the person that they are being sued, providing false case numbers. The caller will then ask for payment in order to remove the person from the case.

Tarrant County Clerk Mary Louise Garcia urges citizens to not provide the caller with any personal or financial information and that the County Clerk’s office does not contact citizens regarding lawsuits and payment.

If you have received a called like this and would like to verify that it is not legitimate, contact the Tarrant County Clerk’s Office at 817-884-1101.
