Clerk of Court and Sheriff want to warn public about phone scam


Sumter County Clerk of Court Jamie Campbell would like to notify the public about a recent scam regarding jury selection.

Citizens around Sumter County have gotten recorded phone calls from “Sumter County Court Services Division” asking people to leave a name and number and purporting to fine them for missing jury duty. Although the number may change, the current number is (803) 720-2807.

No such organization exists, Campbell said. If you are selected for jury duty, notifications are always done by mail, he said.
