Another New Phone Scam

A report of a phone scam has the attention of South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley, and he has a warning for residents in the state, especially in one county.

Jackley and Hanson County Sheriff Randy Bartlett are warning South Dakotans to be cautious of cold calls from individuals who claim to be state or county officials, requesting payment for debts owed to these entities.
The A-G’s office says right away the caller asks for personal identifying information, including bank account information, credit card information and social security numbers.

The request is followed by the threat of arrest by local law enforcement when the person being called doesn’t provide the information.

Jackley says the calls for now seem to be targeting Hanson County residents, but he says citizens throughout South Dakota need to be aware of the attempts to steal personal information.

Anyone who is victimized by such a scam is asked to contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-300-1986.
