Pass this on to your grown children and anyone else you can think
of. This has been verified by the FBI (their link is also included below).
Please pass this on to everyone in your email address book. It is 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 DUTY 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 , AZ and more. 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.
