The court has fielded numerous inquiries from people saying they received a call from someone claiming to be an officer or sheriff's deputy represent- ing the court. The caller claimed an arrest warrant was issued for failing to appear then tells the potential victims to pay up to $1,500 with a cashier's check to cover the warrant. In a news release, Spokane Superior Court Ad- ministrator Ronald Miles said the court does not call people or issue warrants in these matters, and court officers will never ask for a payment or personal information. The jury duty scam is common. According to the FBI, victims are caught off-guard by the threat of arrest and are willing to give personal information to defuse the situation. The scammers then use Lhat information to steal a person's identity or empty a bank account, for example.
