SCAM Telephone Calls Coming from 239-533-5000
Lee Clerk is warning residents of a new round of telephone scams impersonating the Lee County Clerk of Court’s Office.
The calls are coming from our 239-533-5000 telephone number. The caller, identifying themselves as a legal courier with Lee County, is claiming to have legal documents that she needs to serve you. If she fails to attain your signature that legal proceedings will continue without you. She provides a phone number: 877-202-3619 with a bogus case number 201124.
The scammers are getting very clever and you cannot always trust caller ID anymore. Scammers have discovered way to mimic legitimate organizational phone numbers but they are NOT representatives of our office.
If you receive such a call DO NOT CALL back the phone number they have provided. Please respond only to calls made by you to our office for official business.
This latest scam has been reported to the Lee County Sheriff’s Fraud unit.
Please respond only to calls made by you to our office for official business, which includes the newly implemented call-back feature.
If you ever doubt who you are speaking with over the phone, disconnect the call and directly dial 533-5000 to speak with a Customer Service Representative.
