CHARLOTTE, NC (FOX 46 WJZY) - Don’t fall for it: Huntersville Police are warning residents of a jury duty scam going around the area.
It starts with a letter sent through your email. The letter is bogus, along with the arrest warrant threatening that victims must pay $1,000 in the form of a money voucher.
"When you get something in the mail saying that there's a warrant for your arrest people tend to get a little scared and they'll go ahead and send the money, but that will never happen,” Odette Saglimbeni with the Huntersville Police Department said.
Police say if there's a warrant issued for your arrest, they would not send you a letter and if you have a warrant, you can't pay your way out of it and whatever you do, don't share your personal information-- call police and report it.
