JURY DUTY SCAM

JURY DUTY SCAM

This has been verified on Snopes.com (link listed below) and by the
FBI. It is spreading fast so be prepared
should you get this call. Most of us take those summons for jury duty
seriously, but enough people skip out on their civic duty, that a new and
ominous kind of scam has surfaced. Fall for it and your identity could
be stolen, reports CBS


In this con, someone calls pretending to be a court official
who threateningly says a warrant has been issued for your arrest because
you didn't show up for jury duty. The caller claims to be a jury
coordinator. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury
duty, the scammer asks you for your Social Security number and date of
birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest
warrant. Sometimes they even ask for credit card numbers. Give out any of
this information and bingo! Your identity just got stolen.

The scam has been reported so far in 11 states. It is particularly
insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully
people into giving in formation by pretending they're with the court
system. The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide
alerts on their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud.

Hell, I want someone to steal my identity so they experience the living hell that my life is and I'll just go fishing and golfing and surf porn. Just keep the grass cut, listen to my wife bitch, play with my kids, and shovel the snow when there's more than 3" is all I ask. Don't touch my pit though...I'll kill you for that. :ack: :ack: :ack:
