Local Law Enforcement Cautions Residents of ‘Jury Duty Warrant’ Scam

Lufkin Police vehicle
According to a report from the Lufkin Police Department, a man was scammed out of $1,000 yesterday by a caller who identified himself as an Angelina County Sheriff’s Office deputy and claimed the man had two warrants for his arrest. 

“Deputy Davis” said the warrants were for not showing up for jury duty.

Over the course of 2.5 hours, the scammer walked the man through how to make a payment by phone using a MoneyGram card. “Deputy Davis” then gave the man a court date of Dec. 8. After going to the courthouse, the man learned he had been scammed.

The caller attempted to run the same scam on another citizen yesterday, but his attempt was foiled after the person he asked to speak with was no longer reachable at that phone number.

Law enforcement cautions residents on giving any information or money to someone contacting you by phone.
