MONTGOMERY COUNTY (WSLS 10) - People have been calling the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, saying a captain with the office accused them of not appearing for jury duty.

The sheriff's office says these calls are not from anyone associated with the office, but from a scammer.

The phone number the suspects called from was 540-239-0311, which deputies say is a fake number probably generated through Google Voice.

The sheriff's office does not collect money for failing to appear for jury duty.

If you receive any phone calls related to this scam, contact local law enforcement.
