LRM Staff Elects Officers For 2015 BBB Warning: Don/t Fall For Jury Duty Scare Ridgeland residents have been receiving phone calls telling them that they have missed jury duty. BBB serv- ing Mississippi is warning not only Ridgeland residents but statewide residents that this is a scam. 'This is the type of scare that moves from one area to another" says John (FHara, CEO of BBB serving Missis- sippi. "Someone is spoofing the mnber that shows up on your caller ID -- making it look like a local number, even though the caller is probably in an- other country." Madison County residents have stated that the calls sound very official. One resi- dent said that a gentleman identified himself as being with the Madison County Sheriffs office and told them that they missed jury duty and the judge had issued a warrant for their arrest for failure to appear. Then, the man told the resi- dent they owed nearly $400 in fines. If they didn't pay, he'd send deputies to arrest them. The caller offered a way to take care of the fine by purchasing a Green Dot Mon- eyPak Card, putting $400 on the card, then call back the phone number provided within an hour to pay those fines. 'fff you receive a similar phone call, O'Hara says you should ask for the caller's name, address and telephone number. Say, et me chc:k this out and H1 call you hack,' but do not call the number they give you.
