The Sequoyah County Sheriff's Office is warning residents about an ongoing telephone scam in our area.
Residents have reported receiving calls from an individual stating that they are an OG&E service worker who is going to cut off the resident's electricity. The caller then directs the resident to call OG&E customer service and provides a false number. If the resident calls the number, it will be answered as OG&E Customer Service and they will attempt to coerce the resident into paying their bill and thus becoming a victim of the scam.
If you receive a call like this, the sheriff's office states that you should hang up immediately and contact the actual OG&E customer service office at (800)272-9741.
