According to the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, an older Scottsboro gentleman was scammed today. According to Sheriff Chuck Phillips, the victim received a call from someone claiming to be Jackson County Sheriff's Office Personnel. 

The victim was told he and 17 other people failed to appear for jury duty and he would be arrested if he did not pay his fine. The victim was instructed to go to a store and purchase gift cards totaling almost $1000. The caller stayed on the phone with the victim while the victim traveled to the store and purchased the cards. Once purchased, the victim was told to give the caller the numbers on the cards.He was then told to go to the courthouse to meet JCSO personnel. A few minutes later the victim was called a second time by the same person, and told that one of the cards would not work, he would have to return to the store for another card. After getting another card, the victim gave the caller the numbers on that card as well. At that time the victim went to the courthouse as previously instructed by the caller to meet JCSO personnel. 
Upon arrival at the Sheriff's office and talking to officials, the victim was informed that the Sheriff's Office had not contacted him, nor would they make such a call. 
Phillips said the caller's phone number was 256-502-5554. When the sheriff called the phone number, he received a recorded message claiming to be the Jackson County Sheriff's Office. 
Phillips reminds area residents to be cautious and do not give out personal or financial information to anyone who calls. "If someone truly failed to appear in court, or for jury duty, a deputy would serve the official paperwork in person," Phillips added. 
If you receive such a call please contact the Jackson County Sheriff's Office at 256-574-2610.
