Jury scam returns to Bulloch
Callers threaten fines, legal action
A familiar scam seems to have taken on renewed life recently in Statesboro and Bulloch County, as a number of school board employees and local physicians reported receiving calls from people claiming they had missed jury duty. That is only one example of the official-sounding, but fake, calls people are receiving from scam artists who demand payment of fines via reloadable debit cards, said Bulloch County Sheriff’s Capt. Todd Hutchens. The sheriff’s office fielded numerous calls several days ago from Bulloch County Board of education employees who received calls from people demanding they either pay up or go to jail.
