NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - An Adams County judge says telephone scammers appear to be posing as court employees to seek money from local residents.

Adams County Court Judge John Hudson told The Natchez Democrat (https://bit.ly/1kZoOWN) that multiple residents have reported telephone messages directing them to call a telephone number to pay a fine in a civil case.

Hudson says he’s heard similar complaints from other Natchez residents about two weeks ago after calls claimed people missed jury service and instructed them to send money to avoid arrest. The judge says he turned the information over to the Adams County Sheriff’s Office.

The judge says people shouldn’t follow instructions in any sort of call from his office asking for personal information or money.
