Jury Scam Notice
You answer the ringing phone. The caller identifies himself as an officer of the court. He says you failed to report for jury duty and that a warrant is out for your arrest.
You say you never received a notice. The caller says no problem, it can be cleared up right now, but he'll need some information for "verification purposes" -- your birth date, social security number, maybe even a credit card number. Or he might say that if you give him that info to pay a "small fine," the warrant will be dropped.
This is when you should hang up the phone. It's a scam.
Protecting yourself against identity theft is the key: Never give out personal information when you receive an unsolicited phone call.
