by Mark Brown

Jessie Schmidt was the guest on the Greg Belfrage show and brought to light some summer scams to be aware of especially for those college bound kids.

The big scams this summer involve fake Verizon refunds calls or e-mails. The IRS saying you owe more money. She especially warns college kids to be aware of ads on Craig's List and other sources.

These scams are usually targeted at the very young and the elderly.

If you are suspicious, it is probably a scam and you should contact the Better Business Bureau at(605) 271-2066 or come by their office at300 N Phillips Ave, Sioux Falls, SD 57104.
