Summit County court officials are warning residents about a scam in which someone calls a home about problems with a personís jury service.
The caller claims to be from law enforcement and asks the resident to confirm personal information, such as Social Security number or date of birth. Often, the caller threatens arrest if the resident doesnít cooperate.
Court officials said this week that the callers are not employees of the county and instead appear to be attempting illegal conduct.
Residents who receive such calls are urged to hang up immediately and contact local law enforcement.
The Summit County Jury Commissionerís Office said their calls are displayed on caller ID, and workers never ask for personal information or threaten arrest.
If a juror fails to report on their scheduled date, Summit County Common Pleas Court sends a letter via the U.S. Postal Service asking the juror to contact the jury bailiff.
