If people who come up with these scams worked for world peace, it would be a reality, instead they work hard to steal your money.

Here’s the latest and this one is being perpetrated right here at home.

The Official Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office release:

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office is warning area residents of scam that has recently resurfaced in our area.

Victims report receiving a phone call stating a warrant has been issued for their arrest due to their failure to appear for jury duty.  The caller, who claims to be a deputy with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office Warrants division, instructs the victim to provide payment over the phone to void the warrant and avoid arrest.

Reminder to residents: the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office does not accept payments over the phone and a valid arrest warrant is served in person by law enforcement officials.

If anyone believes they may have been victimized by these scammers, please contact the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office at 491-3605.
