Jury Duty Scam - The Newest form of ID Theft

The newest form of identity theft is targeting one of America's least favorite obligations, jury duty. Scammers pretend to be court officials taking victims' private information over the phone.

Scammers call their victims at home claiming to be a jury coordinator. They say that you didn't show up for jury duty and a warrant has been issued for your arrest.

When you say you didn't get a summons they ask for your Social Security number and date of birth to verify their information, and that's where they get you. KXII | Jury Duty Scam Spreading
