WHITTIER, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles County Sheriff’s officials are warning of a scammer calling members of the public and claiming to be a deputy to try and get them to pay $2,000.

Officials say the caller tells people they missed jury duty and needed to pay the money to settle the resulting violation.

City News Service reports Monday that several residents of Whittier have reported receiving the calls.

The Sheriff’s Department says the calls are a scam and deputies will never call members of the public to make demands for money.
