Judge warns of jury e-mail scam

U.S. District Court Judge John Preston Bailey in Wheeling is warning the public about a new federal jury e-mail scam that could lead to identity theft.

According to Bailey, the scam involves a jury phishing e-mail that asks recipients to provide personal identifiers such as Social Security number, birth date, mother’s maiden name and other information on an attached PDF form that is to be mailed back to the originator.

The e-mail is fraudulent and has no connection to the federal courts or e-Juror, the online registration program used by federal courts.

According to Bailey, federal courts using eJuror never request personal identification information be sent directly in an e-mail response.

Requests by courts to complete a juror qualification would be initiated by formal written correspondence, not an e-mail, Bailey said, and would provide instructions for the juror participant to be authenticated over a secure connection.

Individuals suspecting they have received a fraudulent juror e-mail requesting personal identification information should call the clerk’s office at (304) 637-2144 to report the incident.

Workshop on scams, identify theft

Melissa R. Evick, client services manager in the St. Clairsville office of Jarvis Law, Estate & Elder Law, will present a workshop on scams, fraud and medical identity theft at the Healthy Life Workshop to be held Thursday in the cafeteria at Harrison Community Hospital, from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

“With today’s rapid advancement in communication technology, it is almost effortless to find information and to conduct business. However, this same technology has spawned a vast network of criminal activity that encompasses the entire world,” according to a news release. “As information becomes easier to access for honest people, it is likewise just as easy for others who engage in fraudulent activities to abuse it,” it notes.

“From ads that promise miracle cures to free medical supplies, the crooks work every angle to lure in trusting and uninformed consumers. Sadly, many of these victims are older people. These scams can be done over the Internet, the telephone, by mail and even door to door. Here are a few ‘red flags’ that may alert you:

— “Recognize and Report Phone Fraud: Fast talkers who use high pressure tactics could be hiding something. If it’s free, why are they asking you to pay? Are they asking for private account information such as bank, credit card and Social Security numbers? Never give this information to anyone you don’t know regardless of what you are told,” the Federal Trade Commission advises.

— Don’t Be a Target of Healthcare Fraud: “Never give out your Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security numbers to anyone. Medicare doesn’t call or visit to sell you anything. Don’t carry your Medicare or Medicaid card with you unless you need it. Take it to doctor appointments, visits to your hospital or clinic and trips to your pharmacy. Record these visits, tests and procedures on your calendar or in another place so that you can verify bills when they come in.” (Ohio Senior Medicare Patrol – Empowering Seniors to Prevent Healthcare Fraud).

Other tips and strategies to avoid scams and fraud will be discussed.

The free, educational Healthy Life Workshops are held the first Thursday of each month and feature physicians, nurses, dieticians and other health care professionals covering a wide range of topics such as diabetes, arthritis, cardiovascular disease and other health issues.

Light refreshments are served, and reservations are not necessary.
