The Circuit Court of Cook County and the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County are aware of a scam in which persons contact individuals through the Chat feature on Zoom during virtual court proceedings. These persons ask for money in exchange for various services and do not provide the services. Some of these people claim to be attorneys or pretrial officers. The scammer may sound convincing and use real information about you or others and the associated court case.

Please be advised that neither the Court nor the Clerk will ever direct anyone to submit payment of any kind with Apple Pay, Facebook Messenger, Google Pay, PayPal, Samsung Pay, Venmo, Zelle, or any similar electronic payment service. If court fines or fees are owed, they can only be paid in person at the Clerk’s office, by phone, by mail, or electronically through the Clerk’s website at

If you believe you have been the victim of a scam, you should contact your local law enforcement agency.
