TRUMBULL COUNTY, Ohio (WKBN) – The Trumbull County Sheriff’s Office is warning people about a new phone scam.
As part of the scam, the caller will tell you that you missed jury duty and gives two options. The scammer says to pay a requested amount of money, or get arrested by the sheriff’s office.
The Trumbull County Grand Jury Commission only contacts people through mail and does not deal with fines over the phone.
If you receive a call informing you that you missed jury duty and are being fined, contact your local jury commission and the police to resolve any possible issue.
