Scam Calls Prevalent In South Dakota

(Pierre, SD) — South Dakota officials are reminding folks to stay on their toes when it comes to scam calls. South Dakota Better Business Bureau Vice President Jessie Schmidt says government agencies like the IRS, Social Security and Medicare will never initiate communication over the phone. Impostor calls are the most common. Schmidt warns they act as professionals and know how to overcome objections. The National Consumer Law Center reports more than 68 million Americans lost nearly 30 billion dollars to scam callers in 2022.
