Police Warn of Another Telephone Scam
Dec 18, 2014 07:59AM ● Published by Steven Jack
Today, the Sheriff’s Office took a report from an area resident who received a voice message that they missed jury duty from an individual who claimed to be Capt. Robert Hovins from the Kendall County Warrants Division.
The resident did not call the number left on the voice message and did not suffer any financial loss. The Kendall County Sheriff’s Office does not have the rank of Captain nor is there a Warrants Division within the Sheriff’s Office.
Also, as a reminder, the Kendall County Jury Commission will never ask for payment or credit card information for a missed jury date. If you receive one of these calls, do not call back or send money to anyone.
If citizens have received a similar call, they are urged to contact their local police agency, and to file an online report with the Federal Trade Commission at http://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov.
