LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - The Leon County Sheriff's Office is warning residents about a jury duty scam that is recirculating the area.

Deputies say the jury duty scam has resurfaced in the Leon County area.

The scam works like this:

Someone will call you and state that they are with the sheriff's office. They'll tell you that you've missed jury duty for the month and have a warrant out for your arrest.

The scammer then tells you that you have to pay a specific amount to them in order for the warrant to be dismissed. 

If you do get a call from a possible scammer, call the Leon County Sheriff's Office at 850-606-3300.
