BOISE -- A warning for Idahoans, who are being targeted by bogus phone calls.

Idaho Courts say the scammers are telling people they've failed to comply with jury duty services, and are coerced into giving confidential information, like social security numbers and credit card numbers.

The federal courts do not require potential jurors to give that kind of information over the telephone. 

If you get a call like this, contact the Clerk of Courts office.
