GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — The Guilford County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents about a recent scam in which victims are told they missed jury duty.

The scam involves a suspect calling victims and identifying themselves as a deputy with the sheriff’s office.

The suspect tells the victim they have missed jury duty and a warrant has been issued for their arrest. The suspect then tells them that if they pay a monetary fine that warrant will go away.

Any citizen who has been contacted in this scam is asked to call the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office.

    Three of my neighbors got this call. The guy wanted them to purchase a money order “from a convenient store” then call him back for instructions. He specified an amount. Based on when they got their calls in relation to one another, we figured he was going through a phone book.
