Detectives with the Bossier Sheriff’s Office are warning Bossier residents about another round of phone scams circulating in the parish.
Detectives say the caller in this scam identifies himself as a deputy or Sergeant with the Bossier Sheriff’s Office. When answered, the caller tells the recipient that they missed jury duty and they owe money to the courts.
Detectives say one way for residents not to fall victim to this scam is to know that it is not BSO policy to contact someone by phone demanding payment for a fine or soliciting money.
If you feel you have fallen victim to this scam, please call the Bossier Sheriff’s Office at (318) 965-3418 or (318) 965-2203.
