Residents Warned of Telephone-Based Jury Duty Scam

Loudoun County, VA:  The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and the Loudoun County Office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court are advising residents of a potential telephone-based scam known as the “jury duty scam”.  

In the jury duty scam, the scammer, posing as a local court worker, tells you that a warrant has been issued for your arrest or you owe a fine because you failed to report for jury duty. During the phone call, the scammer will ask for your date of birth and Social Security number so that he or she can "verify" your jury duty notice. In some cases the scammers will ask for other confidential information such as credit card or bank account information.
