The Smith County Sheriff’s Office has received several complaints recently that residents are again being targeted by scammers. The newest scam is a phone call stating that you have a warrant out for missing jury duty.
The scammer’s say the person missed jury duty and a warrant has been issued. The scammer is using the names of current Smith County Sheriff’s Office employees to make the call seem official. The caller then states that you can pay a fine to avoid arrest.
The Smith County Sheriff’s Office is aware of the scam and is investigating. All residents are advised to not send any money to these scammers.
