The Office of Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County has been made aware of a scam involving persons contacting individuals in Zoom hearing rooms hosted by the Office of the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County.

Please be advised that the Circuit Court Clerk’s Office will never contact any person in a Zoom hearing and request or demand payment of any fines or fees. The Circuit Court Clerk’s Office will never direct anyone to submit payment of any kind by way of Zelle, Venmo, or any similar electronic payment service. If court fines, fees or traffic violations are owed, they can be paid in-person, by phone, by mail or electronically through the Clerk of the Circuit Court’s website.
