  • Be aware that a phone scam is being perpetrated on people in Wayne County regarding jury service. The scam works as follows:
    1.You receive a phone call from someone identifying themselves as a court employee advising you that you had been summoned for jury duty on June 12th and since you failed to appear a warrant has been issued for your arrest.
    2.You are then advised that the payment of $300-$400 dollars would serve to dismiss the warrant and serve as a penalty for your failure to appear. You are then provided with details as to how to pay.
    This is a scam that has been perpetrated in other counties. There was no jury service call for June 12. Warrants are not issued for an arrest for failure to appear for Jury Duty. Do not forward any money to anyone as a result of this call.
