Beware! There's a phone SCAM going on, regarding jury duty. The caller falsely identifies himself as being a deputy at Monroe County Sheriff's Office. He tells you that you were supposed to report for jury duty, and you failed to show up. He says that you are therefore required to "secure a bond" by sending money, which will be returned to you once you've finished your jury duty. The caller uses a spoof phone number.

This call is NOT from the Sheriff's Office; it is designed to get your money. It is illegal. Do not give the caller any money or any information!
