The Baltimore County Police Department is warning residents of a recent increase in scam phone calls pertaining to jury duty.

The caller will claim to be from the Baltimore County Sheriff's Office and tell the resident that he or she has missed jury duty and must pay a fine in order to clear the record. These scam callers will request that the resident purchase a pre-paid debit card and call back with the number on the card. By doing this, they defraud people into giving them money.

The Baltimore County Sheriff's Office will never ask you for money over the phone. If you receive one of these phone calls, hang up and report the incident to your local precinct.

If you have questions about jury duty, you may also contact the Office of the Jury Commissioner.
