Scam Alert: Sheriff's Office Imposter Calling Victim In RI


A new scam is circulating in Rhode Island.  State officials say people are calling victims claiming to be with the sheriff's office and telling them that they missed jury duty.  The imposter also says that the person can avoid jail time if they pay immediately by phone.  At least one person has already paid 900-dollars in connection to the scam.  The number is a 401 area code.  Anyone who has received a suspicious call is urged to call police.
