Jury duty scam resurfaces. If someone calls you, requests you put money on a pre-paid card, stay on the phone with the caller while you drive around to purchase said pre-paid card, and then requests you give the card details to them, its a scam. According to Raymond Duke, Chief Investigator for the Rankin County Sheriff's Office, "the Sheriff's Office might call someone and tell them they would like them to come to the office for an interview, but no one here would ever solicit money over the phone. If fact, we never take money from anyone, even if they do owe a fine; all that is done through the courts."
