There have been reports of fraudsters pretending to call from Superior Court of Justice locations, displaying Superior Court phone numbers on their caller ID. They seek to obtain your personal information, such as your Social Insurance Number (SIN), and threaten arrest.

The Superior Court of Justice will never contact you asking for your SIN or threaten arrest over the phone. If you receive a phone call claiming to be from the Superior Court of Justice and seeking your SIN or other personal information, it might be a scam. If you think it is, you may wish to visit Consumer Protection Ontario’s website at https://www.ontario.ca/page/report-scam-or-fraud.
