OK Lottery Commission Warns Of New Scam

Posted:



OKLAHOMA -- The Oklahoma Lottery Commission is warning of a new kind of phone scam going around.

Most of the calls are coming from an 873 area code.
  
They say the scammer tells the person answering the phone that they've won a large sum of lottery money and that all they need to do to claim the prize is wire money to pay the taxes.
The lottery security department says they'll never ask for money up front and they urges anyone who receives a call like this to contact the attorney general's office.
