Attorney General’s Office Warns of Telecommunications Services Invoice Scam

Invoice

 

PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) The South Dakota Attorney General’s Office is warning businesses and government offices of a telecommunications services invoice scam. A.G. Marty Jackley says that a company is sending solicitations that look like invoices for telecommunications services that weren’t authorized. The state’s Consumer Protection Division has received several calls from businesses and government offices across South Dakota. They have been sent an invoice for $425 for a “telecom maintenance agreement” from a company that is thought to be from California. Jackley says the invoices serve as future sales pitches from the companies. He says the invoices look real and are being paid without question. Jackley says recipients should question the validity before they submit payment. Those that have questions about the scam can contact the A.G.’s Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-300-1986 or email consumerhelp@state.sd.us.
