Yolo sheriff warns of jury duty scam

From page A3 | February 25, 2014 |

The Yolo County Sheriff’s Department is warning of a recent phone scam in which the caller claims the victim must pay a fine because they failed to show up for jury duty.

Several California sheriff’s offices have received reports about the scam, in which the caller claims to be a sheriff’s office employee who demands payment via a Green Dot pre-paid credit card transaction to clear up an outstanding warrant. Victims are told they did not show up for their required jury duty and must pay a fine on the resulting arrest warrant.

So far, no Yolo County residents have reported being victims of the scam. Although the calls typically originate from a local area code, they are fraudulent and have no connection to either the sheriff’s departments or the courts in those counties, Sheriff Ed Prieto said.

Anyone who receives a phone call from someone demanding payment for an outstanding warrant should immediately report the call to their local law-enforcement agency, Prieto said.
