Jury Duty Scam
Another scam is making the rounds. This time police say it centers on Jury duty. Police locally and across the country have been receiving calls from people who tell them they are receiving calls from someone claiming to be affiliated with the local courts system. The caller claims they had been selected for jury duty and did not appear. The scammer then says a warrant has been issued for their arrest and in order to take care of it they ask for a credit card or bank account number to pay the fine and a social security number to verify identity. Police remind you...don't ever give personal information out to anyone you dont know.
