Phone Scam Targets Elderly Oklahomans

A new phone scam appears to be targeting older Oklahomans.

The Oklahoma Health Care Authority says residents are being called and told to provide personal bank account information or risk losing their Medicaid or Soonercare health benefits.

The Authority says you should never be asked for banking information over the phone.

If you have given personal bank information to a caller you should close your account or at least monitor it very closely.
