State dealing with scammers during pandemic

PIERRE, S.D. (WNAX) – As the pandemic spread across the country, scams tagged along.

South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg says they started getting reports almost as soon as the financial rescue package was passed by Congress.

Ravnsborg says people should just slow down and be skeptical about the so called “good deals” that come their way.

Ravnsborg says they also saw a run on COVID-19 test kits.

Ravnsborg says they are working with a few people trying to get their money back.
