WASHINGTON (NewsNation) — Police across the U.S. are warning the public about an old scam with a new twist: Callers threatening you with fines or arrest over jury duty.

The renewed con adds to the billions of dollars lost in the U.S. to internet criminals over the past several years.

The biggest red flag is police and court officials will not call you about jury service, nor will they threaten you via phone and threaten to put you in jail if you don’t pay them.

Don’t fall for it, police say.
