DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Polk County Sheriff's Office is warning of a scam in which people are asked to pay fines for missing jury duty.

The sheriff's office says it has received reports of calls made to county residents, telling them they have been sent numerous certified letters ordering them to report to jury duty. Because they haven't responded, they must pay a substantial fine, and should do so in cash or a pre-paid card.

The sheriff's office says it would never demand payment of fines by phone and asked that those who receive such calls to report them to authorities.
