Jury Duty Scam

Several Ann Arbor REALTORS were contacted today as part of a jury duty scam.  The scammer calls claiming to work for a local court and states that the person did not appear for jury duty. The scammer tells the victim that a warrant has been or is going to be issued for his or her arrest. 

The scammer tells the potential victim that they can clear up the matter by paying a fee or fine at the Sheriff’s office. The payment form is requested to be some type of gift card and the scammer offers to help by having you share the card information as you are in route to the Sheriff’s office.  

Always be cautious when speaking with someone by phone or email from a person claiming to be law enforcement and requesting payment of any kind.  Law enforcement will never contact someone and demand payment or personal information by phone or email.
