The Los Alamos Police Department is warning the public of a recent scam.
Citizens are receiving calls from a person or persons claiming to be with the Los Alamos County Sheriff’s Department. The callers are advising citizens that they need to pay sums of money for missing jury duty.
A link is provided to citizens that looks like an authentic website for the sheriff and it contains a PO Box for the citizens to mail their money orders to.
