SCAM ALERT - Message from Sheriff Demings
Posted Date:

The Orange County Sheriff's Office and Orange County Courthouse personnel have been inundated with complaints of fraudulent jury duty calls.  Here's how it works:  Subjects call victims and pretend to be law enforcement or officers of the court.  The tell the victim that they have missed jury duty and if they want to stay out of jail they have to go out and buy a prepaid debit card and pay the bond over the phone.  THIS IS A SCAM!  However it is so sophisticated that many have been fooled, many OCSO employees have received this call.


Sheriff Demings along with Chief Judge Frederick Lauten commissioned the Public Service Announcement below to bring awareness to this scam. Please be aware and pass this information along to your neighbors and friends.
