    I hope this goes here, Jury Duty scam

    JURY DUTY SCAM: This has been verified by the FBI (their link is also included below). Please pass this on to everyone in your email address book.

    It is spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call. Most of us
    take summons for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out on their civic duty, that a new and ominous kind of scam has surfaced.

    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. Give out any of this information and bingo; your identity just got stolen. The scam has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma , Illinois , and Colorado! This (scam) is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully people into giving information 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.

    This is a real problem, saw it in the newspaper.

    REMEMBER: government conducts business through LETTERS! NOONE will ever call you..unless it's the COPs trying to get you to surrender in your bunker...
