Police department warns of jury scam

The Craig Police Department, in a recent release, warned residents of a jury scam.

The scam is run through direct phone calls claiming to be from “jury duty coordinators,” according to the release. The scammer requests the resident’s Social Security number and date of birth to verify information in order to cancel an arrest warrant. The police department warns that sharing this information can lead to one’s identity being stolen.

Calls of this nature have not been received in Northwest Colorado but have been reported in 11 states, including Colorado.

Those who receive such a jury call should not give out any personal information and should call the Craig Police Department at 826-2360 to report the incident.
