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.
