RSN™ SCAM NEWS: Scammers Claiming To Be U.S. Marshals Demand Money For Missed Jury Duty

The U.S. Marshals Service Says Scammers Are Calling People Across The Nation Claiming To Be Officials Trying To Collect A Fine In Order To Keep From Being Arrested For Failing To Report For Jury Duty.

The scammers reportedly claim to be US marshals, court officers, or other law enforcement officials when they call.

The scammers even provide information like badge numbers and names of actual federal judges and courthouse addresses to appear more credible.

Victims are told that they can avoid arrest by paying a fine using a reloadable credit card, GreenDot card, or MoneyPark card.

Officials say they will never call to arrange payment of fines over the phone for any infraction, including jury duty.

Never give personal or financial information to unknown callers, even if they sound legitimate.

If you believe you were a victim of one of these scams, you should call your local law enforcement officer or the US Marshals at 803-765-5821.

FAQ: How Do You Properly Report Scammers?

It is essential that law enforcement knows about scams & scammers, even though there is nothing (in most cases) that they can do.

Always report scams involving money lost or where you received money to:

  1. Local Police – ask them to take an “informational” police report – say you need it for your insurance
  2. Your National Police or FBI (www.IC3.gov)
  3. The Scars Worldwide Reporting Network HERE or on www.Anyscam.com

This helps your government understand the problem, and allows law enforcement to add scammers on watch lists worldwide.
