LOTTERY PLAYER AWARENESS URGED
The Oklahoma Lottery would like Oklahomans to be aware of a potential scam that seeks to exploit the popularity of the Trucks & Bucks Scratcher game.
Recently, a number of individuals have contacted the Lottery saying they have received a recorded phone message that encourages them to contact the Oklahoma Lottery Commission to claim their truck. The number given in the message is not associated with the Lottery in any way.
The Lottery is currently conducting its Summer Trucks & Bucks Promotion which does include the give-a-way of a truck. However, Grand Prize Drawing finalists for this promotion are contacted with an official letter sent by mail, and includes detailed instructions on next steps and how-to-claim their prize.
Oklahoma Lottery Security is currently investigating the calls and asks that anyone who receives such a call should contact Lottery Security at 405-522-7742 or 405-522-7743 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
For more information, please contact Lisa Fortier, at 405-522-7751, or visit the Oklahoma Lottery’s official website at www.lottery.ok.gov.
