I was on a site with Juror information. It had listed an article about Juror scams. So I checked it out. Well I've never heard of this scam before. Thought maybe some of you hadn't either. I wish this type of scam would be in the news.

Have any of you received a call like this?

From the article -

In various parts of the United States, citizens are being targeted by phone calls and emails, threatening them with prosecution for failing to comply with jury service in federal or state courts.

In the calls and emails, recipients are pressured to provide confidential data, potentially leading to identity theft and fraud. These calls and emails, which threaten recipients with fines and jail time if they do not comply, are fraudulent and are not connected with the U.S. courts.

Federal courts do not require anyone to provide any sensitive information in a telephone call or email.


Take care and be well. :D
