** SCAM ALERT **  From your friends at the DeLand Police Department

Victims reported receiving phone calls from unknown persons claiming to be with the Volusia Sheriff's Office.  Victims are informed they missed jury duty and a warrant will be issued for their arrest unless a fine is paid.  Victims are instructed a payment can be expedited using Bitcoin kiosks.

**** DON'T FALL FOR IT!  This is a scam and can cost you thousands of dollars if you're not cautious.  Law Enforcement Agencies will not call and demand payment in lieu of legal consequences.

If you think you are a victim of a scam, hang up and call our non-emergency line to report it:  (386) 248-1777 or call 911 in the case of an emergency.
