Sharena Gilliland, Parker County District Clerk, and Jeane Brunson Parker County Clerk are warning the public about a phone scam being perpetrated by callers impersonating court personnel.  The scammers say that there are warrants out for people who failed to appear for jury service and ask for payment in order to avoid being arrested. The caller ID may even list a number from an actual Parker County office.


Please be advised that neither the Parker County Clerk or the Parker County District Clerk’s office does NOT call individuals asking for personal information.


To avoid becoming a victim of this type of phone scam:

  • Always be suspicious of unsolicited phone calls
  • Never give money or personal information to someone with whom you don’t have ties and did not initiate contact
  • If concerns remain about the caller’s claims, verify the information with the appropriate court officials or law enforcement agency.  You may call the District Clerk’s office to verify; (817) 598-6114.  You may also contact the Parker County Sheriff’s Office at (817) 594-3213.
  • If you receive a call from a person claiming to be from the County Clerk’s office or have a concern about the caller’s claims, please verify the information with the appropriate court officials or law enforcement agency. You may call the County Clerk’s office to verify the call at 817-598-6163. You may also contact the Parker County Sheriff’s Office at 817-594-3213.
