Jury Duty Scam October 2017 It has been reported by several CT Police Department Officials that scammers are calling claiming to be a member of law enforcement, whether it's the local police, the sheriff's department or the U.S. Marshals Service. The caller typically tells the victim that they have failed to appear for jury duty, failed to answer a court summons or have an active warrant for their arrest, which they may tell you was just signed by a judge. The caller ID may show phone numbers for a courthouse or law enforcement agency, and the caller may cite names of actual police officers, court officials, judges or town officials. The caller will tell the victim that they can pay a fine to avoid arrest. They will request this payment through prepaid cards, gift cards or wire transfer. The caller may even ask to the victim to confirm their identity by soliciting personal information, including your name, birth date, Social Security number and other ID theft-worthy details. According to many Local Police Departments, "The jury duty scam remains one of the most successful intimidation/imposter schemes, "scammers can not only get a quick payoff but also enough personal details for future identity theft." Police recommend that people receiving this call HANG UP without providing any information. This information provided the Senior Medicare Patrol at the Western CT Area Agency Call to be a volunteer and Help STOP Fraud, 203-757-5449
Please be advised that this office has received a number of complaints regarding the IRS phone scam occurring again in this area. The IRS DOES NOT call on the phone - they mail through the Postal Service only. Do not speak to these people. Let me know if you have any questions Thanks Tom
