Jury Duty Scam Alert

The Carroll County Sheriff's Office and Carrollton Police Department have received several complaints of people being contacted saying that they missed jury duty. The caller is identifying themselves as a representative of the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office

The caller will offer an opportunity to make a payment in lieu of being fined or arrested. The caller will instruct you to obtain a “green dot” pre-paid card to make the payment.

These calls are SCAMS!!!


In the event you did actually miss jury duty:

·         You would either be contacted in person by a deputy or

·         Receive a notice to be present in court to show cause why you failed to show.

·         The Carroll County Sheriff's Office will NEVER ask for any payments over the phone.
