Phone Scam Making Rounds In Jasper County

Phone Scam Making Rounds In Jasper County

By Austin Robertson. CREATED Jul 25, 2014

Authorities say a scammer has been calling people in Jasper County, claiming to be a law enforcement officer. The person says there's a warrant out for skipping jury duty, and for a price, they'll make it go away.

The sheriff's office says the best thing to do is just hang up and block the number.
