From the Laramie Police Department:

 

Apparently a scammer is calling residents, saying he’s Officer Shaw with the Laramie Police Department, and demanding that residents pay up to avoid getting arrested for missing jury duty.

This is a scam! Laramie doesn’t have an Officer Shaw. Scammers periodically call around saying they are the police, trying to get people to pay in gift cards, wired money, etc. Don’t fall for it! Hang up immediately, even if the caller ID says Laramie Police (scammers can “spoof” phone numbers to look like they’re coming from a legitimate source).

If you need to speak with the police or want to verify anything call them at 721-2526.
