A phone scam going around Indiana might have some victims thinking they missed jury duty.

The callers ask for financial information to pay a fine, claiming the victim failed to report to a jury summons. It is a scam.

According to WKVI, in Indiana, jurors are only contacted through the mail, and the court will never ask for any type of financial payment information.

Anyone who receives such a call should contact local law enforcement.
