New twist on

identity theft scam

Detective Rick Geist of the Ottawa Police Department has sent a warning of a new identity theft scam. The person calling tells the victim that he works for the local court and claims the victim has failed to report for jury duty and that a warrant has been issued for the victim's arrest. The victim claims not to have received the jury duty notification and the caller asks for the victim's social security number, birth date and even some credit card numbers or other private information the caller can use to commit identity theft. The scam has occurred in Michigan, Ohio, Texas, Arizona, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Oregon and Washington state. Court workers will never call asking for information. Never give out your Social Security number, credit card numbers or personal information to someone over the phone. Hang up the phone and call the local police department to report attempted identity theft.
