Santa Barbara County Superior Court officials are aware of a scam in which identity thieves target local residents. Some of these fake communications made by email could contain an attachment or a link that may install a virus or other spyware on the computer. Other communications make fraudulent demands to pay a fine or provide personal information. The Court NEVER asks for Social Security Numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers or other confidential and sensitive information. Information such as this is not contained within our database and we do not request this information. We urge all members of the public to be aware of such scams and be careful whenever you reveal confidential information over the telephone. Do not give out such information over the phone to anyone who calls you claiming to be with the Superior Court. Anyone with questions about a suspicious communication that appears to be from the Santa Barbara County Superior Court should contact the court. A list of phone numbers for all Santa Barbara County Superior Court locations can be found on the court's website.
