JURY DUTY SCAM
******Wise Eyes Alert******
REMINDER... this JURY SCAM continues to occur across the State and has been reported by Wise Eyes in the past.
Although there haven't been any reported cases in Johnson County, other counties in the State are receiving reports of a scam where citizens have received calls from one or more individuals posing as a Sheriff's Deputy advising the called party that a warrant is being issued on them for failure to appear for Jury Duty. In several of the reported incidents, the poser advises the called party that they can take care of the warrant by having them to send a payment in the form of a "green dot" card. However in some instances no request for warrant payment was given to the called party. In most all of the complaints received the citizen (potential victim) has advised that the caller knows a lot of personal information about them.
There is a recurring number the calls are received from and when dialed, this number has a recorded message that states the purported Deputies Name and he is unavailable, "please leave a message and I will return your call."
In other reported incidents the citizen has received a letter from the "District Clerk's Office" utilizing the same MO as those where citizens receive a telephone call.
DO NOT be deceived. If you receive a call like this contact your local law enforcement agency and report it. Law Enforcement agencies are not going to request anyone to pay their fine with a Green Dot card.
Wise Eyes participants are encouraged to share all Wise Eyes Alerts with friends and neighbors. Anyone wanting to receive the Wise Eyes Alerts, should E-Mail Wise Eyes at gro.xtytnuocnosnhoj@seyeesiw and ask to be placed on the E-Mail list. Please provide your name and either your address or the Johnson County precinct in which you live.
U.S. Marshals Warn Public of Jury Duty Phone Scams
Press Release: March 03, 2016
Contact: USMS Office of Public Affairs (202) 307-9065
Washington - The U.S. Marshals Service is warning the public of a nationwide telephone scam involving individuals claiming to be U.S. marshals, court officers or law enforcement officials seeking to collect a fine in lieu of arrest for failing to report for jury duty. The U.S. Marshals Service does not call anyone to arrange payment of fines over the phone for failure to appear for jury duty or any other infraction.
In order to appear more credible, the scammers may even provide information like badge numbers and the names of actual federal judges and courthouse addresses. Victims have been told they can avoid arrest by paying a fine using a reloadable credit card, and were urged to call a number and provide their own credit card number to initiate the process. The Marshals Service urges the public not to divulge personal or financial information to unknown callers, even if they sound legitimate.
If you believe you were a victim of the jury duty scam, you are encouraged to report the incident to your local law enforcement department, or local U.S. Marshals or FBI office.
