Advanced System Care – Help Keep Scammers Away by Cleaning and Secureing Your PC Effectively and Keeping it that Way

(NewsNation) — In a growing nationwide scam, fraudsters are posing as U.S. marshals and government officials, intimidating victims with threats of arrest for alleged failure to appear for jury duty, the U.S. District Court warned.

“Jury service is one of the most important public services a citizen can perform, and it is a serious matter when scammers attempt to use a citizen’s sense of civic duty to defraud them,” said U.S. Attorney Roger B. Handberg.

Callers in these scams provide convincing details, including the victim’s personal information, real names of federal judges, authentic court addresses and even spoofed phone numbers that falsely appear to be from official government agencies.

The scammers demand immediate payment of a fine to avoid arrest and guide victims through purchasing prepaid debit or gift cards or making electronic payments.

Chief Judge Timothy Corrigan stated, “Let me be clear: these calls are fraudulent. If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be a judge or court official, do not provide them with your financial information.”
