Hawaii judiciary warns of apparent protective order scam

By Associated Press

POSTED:



The Hawaii State Judiciary is warning the public to be on the alert for an apparent telephone scam by a person claiming to be a court employee.

The judiciary says the purported court employee leaves a voice mail message saying they’re calling in regards to a protective order case. The caller asks for a call back and requests additional information like a Social Security number and date of birth.

The judiciary says employees don’t call parties to obtain Social Security number and birth dates over the phone.

It’s urging anyone who receives such calls to report them to the police.

The judiciary said in a statement Friday it’s been contacted by members of the public about the legitimacy of the voice mail message.
