PLEASE BE AWARE
The Huron County Clerk of Courts Office has received reports from a couple local individuals that they received a phone call from a person claiming to be a process server on behalf of the Huron County Clerk of Courts. The caller refused to provide the name of the company providing service and requested that the parties meet them at a local fast food restaurant.
Clerk of Courts, Susan Hazel, wants to warn local residents that this appears to be a scam. If papers are being served by an attorney through a process server, the service will typically be made at the residence or place of work. The paperwork provided by the court for service DOES NOT INCLUDE PHONE NUMBERS. The process server should not be calling to make arrangements to make the service.
People receiving papers from a process server should always be able to request and be notified of the name of the company making service. People should never agree to meet an unknown caller. Also, do not provide additional information, such as your address, to an unknown caller. If individuals have questions, please contact the clerk’s office or report your concerns to the police or sheriff.
