Oh, this one is low.

Apparently someone is calling around pretending to be from the Third Judicial Circuit court in Wayne County.

The scammer tells marks they’ve missed jury duty, and they can either pay a $500 fine - (Right now! Over the phone! How convenient!) - or the court will issue a warrant for your arrest.

Beginning this fall, people serving on Michigan juries will be allowed to play a more active role in the pursuit of justice.   The Michigan Supreme Court announced today that it is revising the rules for people serving as jurors.
