Scam Alert: You May Not Actually Have Jury Duty

Officials warn that jury duty scams are popping up in Minnesota, in which scammers try to bank on your "sense of civic duty." 

These scammers, KARE 11 reports, will tell you that you've missed jury duty and then ask for credit card information and social security numbers, threatening your arrest. 

How can you tell if you're being scammed? It's simple: if you get a call like this in the first place, at all. Minnesota's court system will only issue jury summons via mail, and will never ask for that information over the phone or by email.
