WCSO Investigating Impersonation Phone Scam of Sheriff's Office Employees and Jury Scam
Sheriff Mike Adkinson is investigating a phone scam involving the impersonation of WCSO employees claiming a family member has a warrant for their arrest in an attempt to acquire money. Another ruse involves the caller telling the victim they missed jury duty and they are being fined $2,000, but if the person settles over the phone, they will accept $500.
Pursuant to 40.23(3), any person who is duly summoned to attend as a juror in any court and who fails to attend without any sufficient excuse shall pay a fine not to exceed $100, which fine shall be imposed by the court to which the juror was summoned, and, in addition, such failure may be considered a contempt of court.
