Subject: Jury Duty Scam







Check out the FBI website below, it confirms this story!

Jury Duty Scam   DO NOT DELETE WITHOUT READING !  Pass this on to your 
grown children.
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 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 . 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.
