RIDGWAY, Pa. (AP) — What's worse than jury duty? State police in one western Pennsylvania county say it might be a scam in which someone is trying to pry personal information out of people by telephoning to claim they've missed jury duty.
WJAC-TV (http://bit.ly/1cskRoI ) reports troopers from the Ridgway barrack say several Elk County residents have received the bogus calls.
Residents are being warned that they face fines if they refuse to verify their names, Social Security numbers and even their credit card numbers. Police believe the callers are hoping to use the information gathered in identity theft schemes.
Police say residents should just hang up if they get such a call. But anyone who has provided information to such a caller should contact their local police and closely monitor their credit report and card statements.
