The phone rings. You answer and someone claiming to be a jury coordinator tells you there’s a warrant out for your arrest because you didn’t show up for jury duty.
Do they have your attention?
You bet. Now they’re going “help” you out. You can pay a small fine over the phone (via credit card). Or you can give them a little information (like your Social Security Number) and they’ll look into why you never received a summons.
Don’t fall for it.
- Court officials don’t ask for information over the phone.
- Don’t share personal information when you receive an unsolicited call.
