FAIRFIELD — A phone scam has been taking place in the county involving a person representing himself as a Solano County Jury Department employee.
The imposter tells the person who answers the phone that he or she is the subject of an arrest warrant for missing jury duty. But, he says, he can resolve the matter for a few hundred dollars, according to a Solano County Superior Court press release.
Court employees do not contact past or prospective jurors by telephone to request personal information or to collect money, the press release said. People who receive these type of calls should contact their local police department.
