[ARCHIVED] Another Jury Duty Scam

The Cole County Sheriff’s Department is receiving complaints again of a scam involving Jury Duty. This is the same scam we had in Jan of last year. The suspects are calling people and identifying themselves as an officer. They are telling the victims that they missed jury duty and now have to pay with money orders or there will be warrants for their arrest. This time the subject is identifying himself as Officer Davenport.

This is a scam and people should not pay this money. If in doubt, look up the number for the court clerk of whatever county the official is representing and call them.
