State Lottery Officials Warn Of Scam

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- State lottery officials are warning players of the "Trucks and Bucks" game of a scam that tells them they've won a truck.

Several people report getting a pre-recorded phone message encouraging them to call lottery officials because they've won a truck.

But the Lottery Commission says the number provided in the message is not associated with the state lottery.

The commission says grand-prize drawing finalists for the Trucks and Bucks game are notified by mail with an official letter. The letter includes detailed instructions about claiming prizes.

Oklahoma Lottery security officials are investigating the calls.

Anyone who receives a suspicious call is asked to call (405) 522-7742 or (405) 522-7743.
