Lancaster County Sheriff's officials are warning everyone to steer clear of Green Dot scams. Just this weekend, LSO officials say they got six phone calls from people who were targeted.

They say the scam artists are claiming to be LSO officials, telling victims they missed jury duty and need to load a Green Dot card with money or they'll be arrested.

One victim already lost $1,000.

According to officials, the scam artists are calling from a Jamaican area code, but their voicemail message claims they're Lancaster County Officials!

LSO wants you to be aware of this latest hoax and to call them immediately if you've been targeted at 402-441-6500.
