There is a new scam that law enforcement is attempting to fight by getting information out to the public.
The Polk County Sheriff’s office has been made aware of a scammer that is calling citizens, claiming to be Detective Josh Sanders with the PCSO. He is telling victims that they have a fine for not attending jury duty, and will be arrested if they do not pay.
Detective Sanders nor any other law enforcement personnel in the Polk County Sheriff’s Office will contact anyone about missing jury duty or try to collect payment from anyone.
This is a scam, and the PCSO urges all to not give any personal information or payment.
