Woman out nearly 2K for ‘jury duty’ scam

LINCOLN, Neb. -- A Lincoln woman is out close to $2,000 after falling victim to the "jury duty" scam. 

Lancaster County Sheriff's Office says the woman was told she had two warrants out for her arrest because she failed to show up for jury duty. 

The scammers told her she needed to get $1,800 worth of Green Dot cards from Hy-Vee and read them the card numbers. 

Then she was asked to mail the cards to the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office. The woman complied. 

Police have not been able to identify the suspects and are investigating.
