The U.S. Attorney for South Dakota says people should be watching for tax refund scams at this time of year. Consumers are advised by U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson to keep an eye on their credit history for any indication that their personal information is being used by scammers to seek refunds through false tax returns…

 

Johnson says in cases like last year’s data breach at Target stores, theft rings get a hold of personal data for a number of consumers and then sell those details to others who use identifying information to obtain credit cards or to file taxes in another person’s name…

 

Those who feel they have been a victim of tax refund or identity theft scams can contact South Dakota’s Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-300-1986 or go to http://atg.sd.gov/Consumers.aspx
