Jury Duty Phone Scam Warning

Post  DHF on Thu Jul 11, 2013 10:56 am

Outline
Circulating message warns that scammers are committing identity theft by phoning potential victims and threatening them with prosecution for failing to report for jury duty unless they reveal sensitive personal information.

Brief Analysis
The claims in the message are true. Authorities in the US began warning people about such scam attempts back in 2005. Reports of the scam continue to appear in US news publications. Court officials will never make unsolicited phone calls to citizens demanding that they immediately divulge sensitive personal and financial information. If you receive such a call, do not give the caller any personal information. Just hang up.
