AG issues warning about jury duty scam

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

The Vermont attorney general's office is warning of a jury duty scam hitting Chittenden County.

They say someone is calling people claiming to be from the Sheriff's department or the "Chittenden Courthouse." The scammer tells people they missed jury duty and need to pay hundreds of dollars in fines to avoid being arrested.

If you get one of these calls, the AG says don't give out any personal information or send money. You're also asked to report the incident to Vermont's Consumer Assistance Program.

The AG's office says a similar scam hit Rutland County in March.
