Seneca County Sheriff Warns of Scam

The Seneca County Sheriff’s office is reporting a bold scam. According to a release, the department has received several reports from residents saying they have been contacted by phone by someone saying that the victim had missed jury duty and threatening arrest unless the they buy a voucher or make a payment to resolve the issue.

The phone number associated with the scheme goes to a recorded message claiming to be the department but no-one can answer the call.

The actual Seneca County Sheriff’s Office says that no such system to avoid jury duty exists and that the calls are a scam. Anyone receiving such a call is urged to report the call to local authorities at their published non-emergency phone number.
