Jury Scam

   In the jury duty scam, the scammer, posing as a local court worker, tells you that a warrant has been issued for your arrest because you failed to report for jury duty. Since you probably had not received a jury duty notice, you will say so. At this point, the scammer will ask for your date of birth and Social Security number so that he or she can “verify” your jury duty notice.     Of course, a Social Security number and date of birth are all the identity thief needs to make your life downright miserable.
