Scam jury emails
People are being warned to be aware of fake jury service emails doing the rounds.
The email tells the person they have been selected to participate in a court proceeding.
They are then asked to register their information.
Gardai have been alerted to a scam where fraudulent jury service notices are sent by email with a request to click on a link. This is a scam. Do not click on links. Genuine jury summons issue via An Post, while other official docs issue by registered post/summons/warrant. pic.twitter.com/SXVlL2zqxp

Gardaí say the receiver is then requested to click on a link, but that they should not, as it is a scam.
People are being reminded that a genuine jury summons is issued via An Post.
