FBI Warns of Jury Duty Scam

The Dallas FBI has recently received multiple reports from East Texas residents regarding an ongoing jury duty telephone scam. But Scams are coming from multiple locations, including Newport New Virginia, New York City.

It begins when the scammer, posing as a law enforcement officer or court official, calls a victim to advise that he/she is delinquent from serving federal jury duty but can avoid arrest by paying a fine over the phone.

The scammer provides information like titles and badge numbers of legitimate law enforcement officers or court officials; names of federal judges; courtroom numbers; and addresses in an attempt to make the scam credible.

The public is reminded that this is not protocol of the federal court system. This is a scam. The public should not provide personal identifying information or payment over the phone without independently verifying the credentials of any caller.

If you believe you may be a victim of the jury duty scam, identity theft, or other scheme and wish to report it to law enforcement, please file a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) at www.ic3.gov and your local law enforcement agency.
