Sheriff's Department Reports Phone Scam

Posted: Updated:
The Burleigh county Sheriff's Department says they have received several calls related to a recent phone scam.

A caller is posing as a deputy sheriff saying that the person they are talking to has missed jury duty and there is a warrant out for their arrest. The caller then says that the warrant will not be executed as long as a person pays a certain amount of money. The caller directs the individual to obtain a money order from a local business.

Authorities want to assure the public that this is not how they handle missed jury duty situations.
