This has been verified by the FBI (their link is also included

spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call. Most of us
take those summonses for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out
on their civic duty, that a new and ominous kind of fraud has surfaced.

The caller claims to be a jury coordinator. If you protest that
you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks you for
your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify
the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this
information and bingo; your identity was just stolen.

The fraud has been reported so far in 11 states, including
Oklahoma , Illinois , and Colorado . This (swindle) is particularly
insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully
people into giving information by pretending they are with the court
system. The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide
alerts on their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud.

You know

People are still stupid , regardless. I wouldnt care if the President of the United States called and it showed it on caller ID, I would NEVER give out my SS# to anyone unless I knew for sure (like my dad asking me)

I dont feel sorry for any of those idiots just like I didnt feel sorry for myself when I rejoined that 2nd time at _ _ casino. I havent had ONE problem since I dropped them in late fall, not one. I was more mad at myself than anything

Thanks for the heads up Bingo! Unless a G-Man shows up at my door with proper ID, callers/emailers get my standard "kiss my azz" reply.

There are just so many crooks in world. It gets discouraging sometimes to always have to be so suspicious of everyone.
