SCAM ALERTS

    

  • If someone calls claiming to be from the IRS, DO NOT speak with them, hang up. The IRS will mail any correspondence they have for you.

 

  • If someone calls identifying themselves as a law enforcement officer who has a warrant for your arrest, Do Not speak with them. You may receive a second call advising you that in order to avoid arrest, go to WalMart and get a "Green Dot" card in "XXX" amount of dollars. If you are asked, Do Not under any circumstance give them your personal information, especially bank account, debit or credit card information. Hang Up!

 

  • If someone calls identifying themselves as a law enforcement officer and advises you there is an arrest warrant for, "Failure to report for jury duty," and to avoid arrest they need your bank account, debit or credit card information, Hang Up!

 

  • If someone calls you and advises they are an AT&T representative, that your account is suspended, and in order to reactivate it you must follow their instructions, do not continue the call. If possible, follow-up with AT&T and tell them what has occurred.

  • The FTC is getting reports about people pretending to be from the Social Security Administration (SSA) who are trying to get your Social Security number and even your money. In one version of the scam, the caller says your Social Security number has been linked to a crime (often, he says it happened in Texas) involving drugs or sending money out of the country illegally. He then says your Social Security number is blocked – but he might ask you for a fee to reactivate it, or to get a new number. And he will ask you to confirm your Social Security number.

    In other variations, he says that somebody used your Social Security number to apply for credit cards, and you could lose your benefits. Or he might warn you that your bank account is about to be seized, that you need to withdraw your money, and that he’ll tell you how to keep it safe. 

    But all of these are scams. Here’s what you need to know:

    • The SSA will never (ever) call and ask for your Social Security number. It won’t ask you to pay anything. And it won’t call to threaten your benefits.
    • Your caller ID might show the SSA’s real phone number (1-800-772-1213), but that’s not the real SSA calling. Computers make it easy to show any number on caller ID. You can’t trust what you see there.
    • Never give your Social Security number to anyone who contacts you. Don’t confirm the last 4 digits. And don’t give a bank account or credit card number – ever – to anybody who contacts you asking for it.
    • Remember that anyone who tells you to wire money, pay with a gift card, or send cash is a scammer. Always. No matter who they say they are.

    If you’re worried about a call from someone who claims to be from the Social Security Administration, get off the phone. Then call the real SSA at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778). If you’ve spotted a scam, then tell the FTC at ftc.gov/complaint.

  • Circuit Court of Lauderdale County
     
    There is another JURY SCAM in our county. The caller will advise you to wire $1,500 from any Walgreens, CVS, Dollar Gen, Walmart, etc..........
     
    The caller will also advise that there is a "Gag Order" in effect and you must not discuss the call with anyone.
     
    THE COURT SYSTEM DOES NOT DO BUSINESS IN THIS MANNER FOR ANY TYPE OF JURY DUTY.
     
    DO NOT ENGAGE WITH THE CALLER
    DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION
