A Monday press release from the Craighead County Circuit Clerk Candace Edwards detailed a scam involving jury duty.
Below is the full press release:
On 4/19/2021 Craighead County Circuit Clerk Candace Edwards was notified of an apparent scam dealing with jury duty.
The email or phone call claims that the individual contacted had been selected for jury duty and did not appear. Jurors are asked to pay a fine for $450.00 for an FTA (Failure to Appear) and $550.00 for Contempt of Court.
You will never be contacted over the phone to collect money for missing jury duty.
This is a scam, DO NOT give anyone money for missing jury duty.
