IDENTITY THEFT

Here is a new identity theft scam you may not know about: Stealing information, including Social Security numbers, birth dates, and credit card numbers for verification purposes.

Identity theft scammers, pretending to work for local courts, are calling potential victims with the news that they have failed to report for jury duty and that a warrant has been issued for their arrest. They then ask victims for personal confidential information scammers need to commit identity theft.
