Attorney General Warns Not To Respond To Spoofed Calls From The Supreme Court

The Attorney General came out with the below warning on Thursday, March 11th, warning people to avoid responding to any spoofed calls that look like they are coming from the Supreme Court.

Don’t Respond To Spoofed Calls From The Supreme Court
Thursday, March 11, 2021

The Supreme Court of North Carolina has received reports of North Carolinians getting phone calls that look like they are coming from the Court’s phone number (919-831-5700). These are spoofed calls – scammers are manipulating technology to make it look like you’re getting a call from a person you know or a legitimate business or agency. These scammers are pretending to be court officials and threatening legal action or arrest if you don’t provide personal or financial information.

Legitimate government officials, such as those from the judicial system or the IRS, and law enforcement officers will never call or text you to demand payment or threaten arrest. Scammers are trying to scare you into giving up your information. These high-pressure tactics are meant to make you vulnerable and more likely to give scammers what they want.

Never share personal or financial information or answer a caller’s questions unless you’ve verified who you’re speaking with. You can hang up, look up the agency’s or company’s contact information independently, and then call them directly to make sure the conversation is legitimate.

If you think you or someone you know has been the victim of one of these spoofed calls, please report it to our Consumer Protection Division at 1-877-5-NO-SCAM or file a complaint <>  online.

Excellent services provided.

Attorney Frances Knox helped my family in providing much needed legal documents. She was very prompt, knowledgeable and went well out of her way to help us. She provided excellent legal services and was very congenial and easy to work with throughout the process. I highly recommend her as an attorney.

Exceptional Legal Representation & True Professional, Genuine Individual

I first met Allen after he was recommended to me by a friend, and I couldn't be happier with the service that he provided. He demonstrated a unique attention to detail in my case, as well as expressed a genuine interest in me as a person. Through a great deal of hard work, Allen was able to appeal my case and get all of my charges dismissed. I couldn't be more grateful for him and his assistant, Sherry, for their legal and personal support during such a difficult time. Hiring Allen was the greatest decision I've ever made, and I would recommend Allen to anyone seeking exceptional legal representation.
