Scammers are getting more sophisticated these days…there’s no doubt about it.

They literally scheme all day and night to come up with ways to try to rip you off and a woman named Marley posted a video on TikTok and talked about how she became the target of a new scam.

Marley said she received a phone call while she was at work and the person said they were from the Sheriff’s Department.

When she told the caller her name, they said they were calling to talk to her because she had missed performing jury duty. They added that this resulted in two $375 misdemeanors that needed to be paid for.

The caller also said there was now a warrant out for her arrest.

Marley said all the correct info when she asked for more information, so she thought it was legit.

She paid them off because she was scared of being arrested and found out later that it was all a scam.

Marley told viewers, “These people have a script printed out in front of them. Like, no joke.”
