DURANT, Okla. (KTEN) — Durant police are warning about a scammer making calls in the city who is claiming to represent Oklahoma Gas and Electric.

Investigators got a tip from OG&E about the scheme.

The individual is calling customers and asking for payments to avoid service cutoffs.

OG&E says customers facing service cuts will be contacted by mail; don't fall for the scam, and call the company's customer service line at 800-522-6870 with any questions.
