OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Officials say an apparent lottery scam has resulted in the circulation of bogus cashier's checks containing the name of an Oklahoma City bank.

Bank 2 reported the counterfeit checks and says the scam includes notification that someone has unclaimed prize money. The bright blue counterfeit checks are supposedly to cover processing charges.
