FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A jury duty scam has surfaced in Cass County.

The scam involves a caller telling a person there is a warrant out for his or her arrest for failing to report for jury duty, but that he or she can arrange a payment to cover bond.

The scam hit Richland County earlier this month, with the caller claiming to be a representative of the Richland County Sheriff’s Office.

The Cass County Sheriff’s Office says a telephone scammer is now masquerading as a deputy with that department.

People are advised to contact law enforcement if they receive such a call, and to not give out personal information or account numbers.
