Be wary.

People are being warned to be aware of fake jury service emails doing the rounds.

The email tells the person they have been selected to participate in a court proceeding, and they need to register their information.

Gardaí say the receiver is then asked to click on a link, but that they should not, as it is a scam.

People are being reminded that a genuine jury summons is issued via An Post.
