Sheriff Mancuso warns of jury duty scam

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff Tony Mancuso is warning area residents of a scam that has recently surfaced in our area.

Victims report receiving a phone call stating a warrant has been issued for their arrest due to their failure to appear for jury duty or grand jury. The caller, who claims to be with the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office, instructs the victim to purchase a prepaid PayPal card to void the warrant and avoid arrest. This Is A Scam!

Sheriff Mancuso wants residents to know that the majority of the time a valid arrest warrant is served in person by law enforcement officials; however, in some circumstances a law enforcement official may call you if you have a warrant but under no circumstance will that officer ever ask for money or any form of payment.
