The Connecticut Judicial Branch is warning the public about a phone scam where the number appears to come from a state court.
Officials said members of the public have reported to the Connecticut Judicial Branch that they have received calls from the Norwalk Superior Court since yesterday.
The caller claims that the person's loved one is locked up and they need to immediately provide a credit card number for bail, Judicial Branch officials added.
The caller ID shows the origin of the call as Norwalk Superior Court.
According to officials, these calls are scams. Anyone who receives one of these calls is urged not to provide any information including credit card numbers. They should also call their local police department.
The Connecticut Judicial Branch said they would never make a call soliciting payment.
