Jury Duty Scam Hits Fremont

BLAIR – A “jury duty” Scam is circulating in Dodge County according to the Fremont Police Department.  Police Chief Jeff Elliot says residents are receiving calls saying the victim missed jury duty and must pay a fine or be arrested, Elliot says if a resident is genuinely needed for jury duty, or if they have missed jury duty, a summons would be delivered and a hearing held to determine the facts, and payment in lieu of arrest is not an option.  Chief Elliot strongly discourages you from giving out any personal or financial information – contact the Fremont Police if you have a question or concern regarding scams.
