Circuit Court

Stafford Courthouse


If you receive a phone call advising you that a Stafford County Sheriff Deputy has an arrest warrant for failure to appear for jury duty in Stafford and you are to purchase prepaid cards to pay the "bond" so you will not be arrested, this is a scam.  They ask you to stay on the phone and if you hang up you will be arrested. Do not purchase these cards and notify the Sheriff's Department.
