SUMMIT COUNTY -- Authorities have issued a warning about a recent scam involving jury duty.

The Summit County Sheriff's Office says somebody posing as a deputy or a clerk for the Court of Common Pleas is contacting people over the phone and e-mail to alert them they have an outstanding warrant for failing to report for jury duty.

The suspect then tells the victims that the issue can be resolved if they pay between $700 and $800.

If you feel you have been contacted by this individual, authorities ask you to contact them at 330-643-2270.
