BBB warns of jury scam

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The Better Business Bureau has issued a consumer alert about scammers who could be after your money and your identity.

The scammer calls, claiming you missed jury duty. They ask for your personal information, including social security number and date of birth, claiming it is needed to verify your identity.

Court officials say the court never asks for this information over the phone.
