Garda alert over fraudulent jury service notices

An Garda Síochána has been alerted to a scam where members of the public have received fraudulent jury service notices by email.

In the email a request is made to click on a link to get a jury number.

A garda spokesperson said: "This is a scam, and the public are advised not to click on any links.

"A genuine jury summons is issued only through the postal system.

"The Courts Service of Ireland will never email a message such as this. Jury summonses are mailed via An Post.

"Other official communications are sent either by registered post, summons or under warrant."
