Phone Scam

The scam reportedly involves a phone call from someone who says he or she is from the court system.

Circuit Clerk Mickey Counts says he's trying to let as many folks know about it as possible.

The victim may or may not have actually had jury duty, or even received a summons for jury duty.

Counts says the caller will ask the person for information to complete their record. The request is usually made for the victim's social security number, drivers' license number, and possible credit card numbers.

Counts says he first learned about the scam through an e-mail issued by the Better Business Bureau. Then he received a call from an Enterprise man who recently reported receiving such a call.

If you are from Coffee County and have gotten a similar call regarding jury duty you can contact Mr. Counts during normal business hours. The Enterprise number is 347-2519, and the Elba office number is 897-2954.
