Prank call circulates
This week, someone decided to do some prank calling.
Maj. Stephen Williams, spokesman for the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office, said a prank call/text message began circulating this week.
Williams said the victim initially receives a text message asking them to call a phone number. When that number is called, the caller hears a message saying the person has missed jury duty and will be subject to a $500 fine or 30 days in jail.
Williams said if residents listen until the end, it is clear that it is a hoax.
