Evangelidis and Early Warn Worcester County of Phone Scam

Monday, April 27, 2015

 

A caller identifying himself as an Officer from the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office is placing fradulent phone calls in an attempt to obtain credit card and personal information from unsuspecting recipients.

According to a release from Worcester County Sheriff Lewis G. Evangelidis and Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early, the caller threatens recipients with fines and jail time if they do not provide the information the caller is demainding.

The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office does not contact residents and demand payments or ask for credit card information on behalf of the Courts regarding jury duty and is asking residents to be vigilant against this most recent scam.

Federal and State courts do not require anyone to provide any sensitive information in a telephone call or email. Most contact between a federal or state court and a prospective juror will be through the U.S. mail, and any phone contact by real court officials will not include requests for Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, or any other  sensitive information. Persons receiving such a telephone call or email should not provide the requested information, and should notify the Clerk of Court's office of the U.S. District Court in their area.
