A scam hits close to home for the Glynn County sheriff.

Sheriff Neal Jump took to Facebook on Friday night to warn about the "missed court date scam."

The scammers say you've missed a court date and need to make a credit card payment by phone or face jail time.

Jump said "They are stupid enough to have called me. I can promise you that if we can find the individuals doing this, they will be arrested and placed in the old or new Glynn County jail."
