Sheriff Warns Of Jury Duty Scam


Decatur – The Macon County Sheriff’s Office is again warning of a scam targeting people living in Decatur and Macon County.

The scam involves an individual pretending to be with the Sheriff’s office and demanding payment of a fine for missing jury duty, or face arrest.

The individual then demands the victim purchase a “Green Dot” card to make payment.

This is a scam and no one from the Sheriff’s office is making these calls.  If you sent money to this individual contact the Macon County Sheriff to file a report.

If you have been contacted but did not send money contact the Elder Abuse Hotline at (217) 615-7582.
