Better Business Bureau serving Central and Eastern Kentucky is warning of a jury duty phone scam that tricked a Fayette County woman into paying a $500 “fine” for allegedly missing jury duty.
The woman tells BBB she received a phone call at home Tuesday night from a man identifying himself as an “officer” with the Fayette County Warrant Division.
He told her she had failed to appear for jury duty and was in contempt of court. He told her she must pay a fine over the phone to avoid being arrested immediately.
