We've received new reports recently from people who have been contacted by scammers pretending to be members of the Virginia Beach Sheriff's Office and demanding payment for missed jury duty over the phone. We will NEVER call you and demand money over the phone for missed jury duty or any other reason.

If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from the Virginia Beach Sheriff's Office and asking you to pay money over the phone, hang up! If you've fallen victim to this crime, contact the Virginia Beach Police Department's Economic Crimes Unit at 757-385-8101. You can also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission here:
