Attorney General warns of yet another scam



    PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Attorney General Marty Jackley says South Dakotans should be cautious of callers claiming to be with local utility companies and threatening to turn off their electricity. 
 
     The scam artist says accounts are past due and without immediate action the utilities will be shut off.
 
     Jackley says people who receive such a call should hang up and call their local utility company directly to ask about the status of their account.
 
     He says people who have fallen victim to the scam should contact his office's Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-300-1986 or consumerhelp(at)state.sd.us.
