PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Attorney General Marty Jackley is urging South Dakota consumers to use caution when making home and auto repairs as a result of the recent hail storms.

Jackley says consumers who need repairs may be the target of unscrupulous business practices. His office’s Consumer Protection Division is urging consumers to take necessary steps to evaluate a business before agreeing to a repair job.

Jackley warns people against getting pressured into a quick agreement. He says they should ask to see proof of insurance and/or bond and request a written contract specifying in detail the work to be done and the agreed upon price.

He says people should be cautious if cash-only terms are required and people should not make full payment before the job is satisfactorily completed.
