Spartanburg County deputies say a familiar scam is popping back up again.

The Sheriff's Office has received several calls of someone asking for your money for missing jury duty.

The caller claims to be a sergeant with a badge number 1405.

The called says there's a warrant for your arrest and want you to purchase a prepaid card to cancel the warrant.

Deputies say this is a scam and they would never call and ask for money if you miss jury duty.

If you get one of these calls, they want you to hang up and call the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office to file a report with them, even if you weren't scammed out of money.
