PBSO: Nationwide Jury Duty Scam Comes to Palm Beach Florida

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office is warning residents that a caller is claiming to be a deputy from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office; the recipient missed jury duty and a warrant has been issued for his or her arrest.

PALM BEACH, FL – The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office is warning local residents that there is an impostor calling members of the community and claiming to be a deputy from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

This impostor is accusing the recipient of the call that he or she missed jury duty and a warrant has been issued for his or her arrest. The impostor goes on to say that the warrant can be rectified by purchasing a gift card in a varying amount. After the gift card is purchased the caller asks for the number of the gift card to be read over the phone for validation.

A similar scam has taken place nationwide.

The impostor threatens to send a deputy to the residents home to affect an arrest if he or she does not comply.
