Montgomery County officials warn of fake court document scam

Feb 19, 2018

   Montgomery County officials are warning residents about a scam involving fake court documents that make it seem like the victims owe money to the court. Montgomery County Circuit Clerk Tiffany McCord says a fake civil citation document is being sent to people that has what looks like a seal of the court and a counterfeit signature of Probate Judge Steven Reed. It may even include the victim’s personal information.

McCord says they have received numerous calls about the scam. She advises residents that the court does not send out letters requesting money for missing court. If you receive such a civil citation, you are asked to call the circuit clerk’s office at 334-832-1260.
