Justin Meyer

JUSTIN MEYER is the chief of the Madison Police Department and urges those with phishing scam concerns to reach out with any questions they may have.

Banks play a crucial role when it comes to informing people on the dangers of phishing scams. The #BanksNeverAskThat campaign, launched earlier this year by the South Dakota Banking Association (SDBA), aimed to accomplish spread awareness and offer tips to avoid fraudsters.

“Scams are ever-present; they’re here every day,” Madison Police Chief Justin Meyer said. “We take multiple calls a week from people asking or letting us know that they’ve been contacted by scammers.”
