Have you been contacted by a person claiming to be a court employee who states that you are not in compliance with an order of the court because you missed a court date or did not pay? Keep yourself safe from cyber criminals imitating court telephone numbers (“spoofing”) who demand payment!  Anyone who receives a suspicious phone call should hang up and verify the status of their case using the NMCourts Case Lookup tool.  You can also contact the court directly or call court customer service at: 855-268-7804.  Remember: you can always see a Judge to address your outstanding issues.
