Brazos Valley residents need to make themselves aware of a new telephone scam.

The scam has callers posing as local court officers, claiming the recipient of the call did not appear for jury duty.

When the recipient tries to dispute the claim, the caller asks for a social security number, birth date and possibly a credit card number in order to verify the claim.

Officials are reminding everyone not to ever give that information out over the phone.
