A jury duty scam is making its way around Beaufort County.
A warning was posted on the Court’s website. It cites that there have been reports of residents being called by people claiming to be court or police officers, stating a warrant has been issued for failure to appear for jury duty.
Scammers will attempt to verify personal information. They will also say the fine can be paid for by handing over your credit card number.
Court officials say they will never ask for money over the phone.
If you get a call like this, you are asked to call police right away.
