ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Do not be fooled by the Jury Duty SCAM!

Have you recently been called by someone claiming to be a King County Sheriff’s deputy telling you that you failed to show up for jury duty? Have they asked you to pay a fine over the phone in order to keep from going to jail? Be warned this is a SCAM and is NOT the King County Sheriff’s Office!

Story- The King County Sheriff’s Office wants to warn you of a SCAM that has been occurring in the Seattle area over the last couple of years. Someone may call you and identify themselves as a King County deputy or detective and tell you that you failed to show up for jury duty.

But wait there’s more…. once they have your attention they will threaten you with jail unless you pay a fine immediately. Usually they will request a credit card number over the phone or even ask you to go to a nearby store to purchase a gift card and then tell them the card number. THIS IS A SCAM!!!! Do not give them any money.
