OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Attorney General Scott Pruitt has issued a scam warning after his agency received a complaint that someone may be calling consumers claiming to be with the Oklahoma Health Care Authority.

Pruitt issued the warning Wednesday after a resident was contacted by someone from what appeared to be an Oklahoma telephone number asking for personal information, including a Social Security number.

To prevent becoming a potential victim of a phone scam, consumers shouldn’t provide personal or financial information unless they have initiated the call, send money through a wire transfer unless they are sending it to a close friend or family member and not to feel pressured to give information or send money quickly.

Residents with questions about possible scams should call the agency’s Public Protection Unit.
