AG warns of jury duty phone scam

Posted: Updated:

Guam - The latest scam to reach the Attorney General's Office threatens individuals with being arrested for failing to report for jury duty. According to the AG's Office, a caller claiming to be a jury duty coordinator has been telling residents that there is a warrant for their arrest for failing to report to jury duty. The caller then asks for personal information such as a Social Security Number of date of birth. 

The AG's Office urges the public not to give out any personal information over the phone.  The Superior Court's Jury Unit does not serve summons, ask for confidential information and clear arrest warrants over the phone.

Anyone who may have been contacted by someone claiming to be a jury duty coordinator is asked to report it to Consumer Advocate Bernie Alvarez at 475-3324, extension 171
