Scam Alert: You didn’t miss jury duty and the sheriff’s office isn’t calling to collect

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Department is warning about another phone scam involving scammers impersonating law enforcement officers over the phone.

This time, the scammer — posing as a Lieutenant with the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office — tells the victim they have missed jury duty and must pay a fine over the phone.

“We assure you no one from FCSO is calling you to collect fines. Again, we will never call you asking for money for a fine, Jury Duty, or any other reason,” the department said on social media.

Sheriff’s officials urge residents to hang up the phone as soon as they recognize the scam.
