The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office is warning the public of a recent phone scam hitting the area.

According to the Sheriff's office, "the scam involves callers identifying themselves as members of the St. Louis County Sheriff's Office. The caller claims the recipient has missed court regarding jury duty or has a warrant."

They go on to say that they NEVER "request any payments or financial information by phone."

So, if you get one of these calls, DO NOT give out any personal information or financial information to these callers.
