Jury scam reported in Harrison County

Harrison County residents are asked to be aware of a jury scam.

The Harrison County Circuit Clerk’s Office has been receiving reports from people who have gotten calls from someone who tells them that they have failed to appear for jury duty and have been fined $5,000, that they should pay with a card over the phone and then meet him at the D’Iberville Police Department to pick up a voucher.

Others have been told to meet at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center.
