Have you received a call from someone who claims to be a Clerk & Comptroller’s office employee? Our office periodically issues alerts when we've been made aware of schemes where people impersonate Clerk employees in order to get others to send money or disclose personal information, such as their Social Security number or bank account numbers.
Clerk & Comptroller employees will never call you and ask for payment or personal information over the phone. Our office does call people with overdue traffic tickets to remind them that if they do not pay (either in-person at one of our offices or online at mypalmbeachclerk.com), their driver’s license will be suspended. But, we do not ask for account numbers or payment over the phone.
If you receive a call and you are unsure about it, write down as much information as you can about the call and contact the Clerk’s office at (561) 355-2996.
If you think you may have been the victim of a scam, you should contact your local law enforcement agency or the Florida Division of Consumer Services at 800-HELP-FLA (Florida residents) or
850-410-3800 (from outside of Florida).
