Utility Company Scam Targeting South Dakota Residents

June 26, 2014, 10:17 AM by Brandon Van Westen

Utility Company Scam Targeting South Dakota Residents
PIERRE, SD -

State officials are warning residents to be cautious about phone calls as part of a new round of scamming.

Scammers are phoning residents claiming to be with local utility companies, Attorney General Marty Jackley said in a press release. The caller will state that an account is past due and, without immediate action, the utilties will be shut off.

“If you receive a phone call claiming your utility bill is past due, hang up and call your local utility company directly and ask about the status of your account,” Jackley said. “These callers can be convincing and make it easy to believe that an outstanding debt exists.”

For more information, contact the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division at 800-300-1986 or consumerhelp@state.sd.us.
