Nevada AG Warns Of Identity Theft Scam

Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto is warning residents of a new identity theft scam that has been reported in several states.

Masto says callers pose as court employees and claim they are calling about a person's failure to report for jury duty.

They then ask for information, such as a date of birth and Social Security number, to clear up the issue.

She says some have even told victims they could resolve the matter immediately by paying a fine using their credit card.

The bottom line, Masto says, is to never give out personal information to an unknown caller.
