       Pease pass this on to your grown children and anyone else you can
       think of. This has been verified by the FBI (their link is also included
       below). Please pass this on to everyone in your email address book. It
       is spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call. Most of us
       take those summonses for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out
       on their civic duty that a new and ominous kind of fraud has surfaced.
       The caller claims to be a jury DUTY coordinator. If you protest that you
       never received a summons for jury duty, the Scammer asks you for your
       Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the
       information and cancel the arrest warrant. Give out any of this
       information and bingo; your identity was just stolen.
       The fraud has been reported so far in 11 states, including Oklahoma ,
       Illinois , and Colorado , AZ and more. This (swindle) is particularly
       insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully
       people into giving information by pretending they are with the court
       system.
       The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on
       their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud. Check it out here:
