If you are one of thousands that have been looking at your credit card statement for fraud, you're probably looking for obvious large charges right? Maybe a large ticket item at a electronics store or maybe airline tickets. This one charge you might overlook.
You get a phone call. The caller gives you a name and an important-sounding title and says you didn't report to Jury Duty. They give you dates and times you were supposed to be there. You say, "I didn't know I had jury duty!" They tell you there is now a warrant out for your arrest.
Imagine you’ve lost your dog or cat. Those who’ve been through this heartbreaking experience know you’d do almost anything to get your pet back. And that desire is exactly what makes you a prime target for the lost pet scam.
