US Courts Want You Aware Of A Scam That Could Easily Go National

Not many people my age can say this but, "I have never been called for jury duty".  I have no idea how they contact you or what is expected, I haven't had that life experience yet.  That is why the latest scam makes me so nervous, I don't have anything to compare it to, so it would be harder for me to detect if it was false.
