An imposter is calling residents of Jefferson City and posing as an employee of JC Municipal Court. They have spoofed the telephone number (573-634-6317), so you will see it in your caller id. They will state that you have not paid your ticket and are needing payment. This person is not with the City, so do not supply them with any personal information.
