PIERRE, S.D. - Attorney General Marty Jackley is asking South Dakotans to beware of those potentially exploiting victims of the Copper Lounge collapse in Sioux Falls.
"South Dakotans are by nature very generous and quick to help those in need. We just ask those who want to give to take some simple precautions to ensure their assistance is being received in the most beneficial way," said Jackley.
Here are a few tips to avoid becoming a victim:

These tips apply not only to local tragedies, but for those disaster victims of national and world disasters.
