This appears to be the Warrant/Jury scam coming around again. The email urges the reader to hang up the phone if they receive this call. It points out that the scammer wants immediate payment with a pre-paid cash card, a major feature of this scam. The pre-paid cards are untraceable and therefore the perfect way for a scammer to bully money out of an unsuspecting victim.
The email lists four pre-paid cards that are commonly used in this scam:
· Green Dot’s Money Pak
· Incomm’s Vanilla Reload
· Blackhawk’s Reloadit
· Bancorp’s Netspend
Attached to the email is a .pdf with the following message:
