WATERTOWN — State Attorney General Letitia A. James issued a reminder Wednesday that service members and veterans who were scammed by a national jewelry store chain that had a location in the Salmon Run Mall should file claims to receive refunds from the Harris Jewelry settlement before an April 15 deadline.

In July, Ms. James came to Watertown to announce her office, along with the Federal Trade Commission, had reached an agreement with Harris to end its deceptive marketing practices that targeted 443 service members and veterans in New York alone.
