A number of Delaware citizens have received a scam email for jury service that asks recipients to provide personal identifiers (i.e. social security numbers, mother’s maiden name, date of birth, etc.) on an attached pdf form to be emailed back to the sender.
Please be advised that the U.S. District Court for the District Delaware does not request personal identification information to be sent to the Court in an email response. If you receive a jury scam email, please notify the Court's Clerk Office at 302-573-6170 and, most importantly, do not respond to the email.
An example of the scam email is attached below.

It is further the policy of the United States that all citizens shall have the opportunity to be considered for service on grand and petit juries in the district courts of the United States, and shall have an obligation to serve as jurors when summoned for that purpose. As an American citizen, it is your civic duty to respond to a jury Summons and, if chosen, to serve as a juror. You have officially been invited so. Click here to fill out the Ejury Duty Form now.
