Safety Tip of the Week: Identity theft scam alert

Be aware of the latest identity theft scam:

An individual telephones to inform you that you missed a call for jury duty and advises that you must make it up. The caller then asks for your Social Security Number, etc. If the information is not provided, the story changes to the caller being a representative of the Sheriff’s Department and they may threaten to arrest you. Do not provide the requested information. If you did miss jury duty, the Clerk of the Courts would notify you in writing. If you are a victim of a crime, call the Department of Public Safety at 305-284-6666 or if calling from a campus phone dial 8-6666.
