Pulaski County Sheriff Greg Speck is warning citizens about a scam in the county. He say they’ve received complaints from people who had calls from someone telling them they had missed a court date, did not show up for jury duty or did not show up for a grand jury. Deputies say the scammer will usually ask you to buy prepaid credit cards, such as Green Dot cards and will give you a phone number to call. They say when you call the number and read the numbers off of the card the scammer will have your money. They also said the scammer will use threats to make you believe you do not have any other option but to pay or you will be arrested. Deputies say in some cases the scammers said they were from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office said they will never call you to get money to keep someone out of jail. Sheriff Speck says you should not give your driver’s license number, social security number or any other personal information to anyone over the phone. He says if you receive a call like this call your local law enforcement. Deputies also said since many of these scam operations are outside the continental U.S. it is very difficult to recover a victim’s money or prosecute the scammer.
