Another Day Another Phone Scam Alert To Report
Seems like everyday there is a new scam to report and yes sadly today is no different. I've never heard of this one before but NEVER give personal information or credit card details over the phone! There you've been warned...here's how this scam is working
From the Franklin County Sheriff's Department:
Citizens have been receiving phone calls from scammers, telling them that they have missed jury duty and that warrants have been issued for their arrest unless they make a payment via card.
The Franklin County Sheriff's Office will NOT contact individuals via phone reference outstanding warrants or jury duty, nor will we ever request payment over the phone. If you receive a phone call, please be advised that it is a scam, and hang up.
