The Annapolis Police Department is warning the public of a new scam that has been reported by several Annapolis area resients.

Residents receive a phone call from someone identifying themselves as from the Sheriff’s Office. They are told they’ve missed jury duty for a Federal court case and are pressured to provide the caller with personal information that can then be used for fraudulent activity.
