Latest scam targets college students

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. ( – Scam artists have taken advantage of the pandemic and now their target has turned to college students.

Jessie Schmidt, South Dakota’s State Director of the Better Business Bureau, explained how the scam works.

She said college-aged students are a bit more vulnerable because they don’t have as much experience with scam calls.

Schmidt encouraged anybody with questions to contact the Better Business Bureau.
