It has begun again. There is an old phone scam revving up again in our area. It involves a caller telling the recipient that there is an arrest warrant out for missing jury duty. The caller claims to be a Deputy  from the Natrona County Sheriff's Office.

Here is the official press release from the Sheriff's Office.

"The Natrona County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate an ongoing telephone scam.  Individuals are calling citizens of Natrona County and identifying themselves as current Natrona County Sheriff’s Deputies.  The individuals tell the citizen they missed jury duty and have an active warrant for their arrest.  While they have the citizen on the telephone, they attempt to gather more personal information and request the citizen pay the warrant over the telephone.  The Natrona County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind the public they do not call citizens who have active warrants for their arrest and solicit money from them.  The Natrona County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone who may receive a telephone call concerning a warrant for their arrest, to not give out any financial or personal information, and end their conversation immediately."
