Scam Alert Jury Duty

POSTED: July 26, 2017

A Message from the Bettendorf Police Department

Recently several citizens reported receiving scam/fraud phone calls. Suspects called posing as law enforcement with the Scott County Sheriff’s Office and threatening victims with arrest due to missing jury duty. Victims were instructed to pay the bond money immediately otherwise they would be arrested. Suspects instructed victims to purchase prepaid money cards from Walgreens then provide them with the number from the back of the prepaid cards. These calls were all scams.
