Don't Fall for the Jury Duty Phone Scam


Decatur- Macon County Lt. Jonathan Butts said, two people reported an unidentified person called them and identified themselves as being affiliated with the Macon County Sheriff's Department. The caller said, the person on the receiving end missed jury duty and a warrant is out for their arrest. However, in order to stay out of jail, the person had to send a Green Dot Moneypak or a Prepaid Visa card. 

Lt. Butts said, authorities do not call to make an arrest. He said this is one scam you should not fall for. When you hear "Green Dot" that is one tip to make you realize it is a crooked deal.

No one has fallen victim for this recent scam.
