PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley is urging consumers to exercise caution when shopping for deals this holiday season, especially on “Black Friday.”

Jackley’s office said on Wednesday that holiday shoppers should check refund and return policies; verify delivery dates; check over warranties; and research shipping and handling charges.

For consumers using computers or mobile devices to shop, the attorney general advises to ensure all software is current and to be wary about unknown Twitter and Facebook offers.
