GREENVILLE, TX (KLTV) -

Greenville police and Hunt County sheriff deputies are warning residents of a telephone scam regarding jury duty.

According to police, residents have received phone calls from someone identifying themselves as Hunt County sheriff's deputies. In the phone call, the scammers tell the victims they were mailed letters for, and have now missed, jury duty. Residents are told that they must pay a fee to avoid a warrant for their arrest.

Police say authorities will not contact residents by phone to request payment for missing jury duty.

If you are contacted by scammers, call the Hunt County Sheriff's Office at (903)453-6800 or the Greenville Police Department at (903)457-2900.
