Jury Duty...NO JOKING MATTER!
If you have ever been subject to any kind of scam, such as credit card, real estate, or any other kind of financial or personal fraud, you understand that it is NO JOKING MATTER the terrible feeling of deception is overwhelming! Here is a new scam that has been started that we at Linda Secrist & Associates feel it important for EVERYONE to be aware of!
Pass this on to your grown children and anyone else you can think of. This has been verified by the FBI (their link is also included below). Please pass this on to everyone in your email Address book.
It is spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call. Most of us take those summonses for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out on their civic duty that a new and ominous kind of fraud has surfaced.
The caller claims to be a jury DUTY coordinator. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the Scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this information and bingo; your identity was just stolen.
The fraud has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma , Illinois , and Colorado , AZ and more. This (swindle) is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully people into giving information by pretending they are with the court system.
The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud. Check it out here:
Yep! It's true... This is NO JOKING MATTER!
