New phone scam in Lamar County

By  | 

LAMAR COUNTY, Tex. (KXII) -- They say the caller will tell you that you missed jury duty and owe a fine.

The caller then tells you to put money on a card from a drugstore and send it to him.

He will threaten to arrest you if you don't comply.

The sheriff's office says this is a scam - don't fall for it.

Just hang up and report it to local authorities.
