Oklahoma scam targeting Democrats

From the Oklahoma Democratic Party (ODP) warning the public about a dangerous phone scam purportedly targeting Democrats.

"The ODP has been made aware of perpetrators posing as representatives from the Oklahoma Democratic Party calling registered Democrats, asking for contributions, and getting credit card information from unsuspecting donors. The Oklahoma Democratic Party has notified the Oklahoma Attorney General, Federal Trade Commission, and the FBI concerning these suspicious calls.

"The ODP does not call donors requiring their credit card information over the phone when fundraising. If you should receive a phone solicitation from someone impersonating the Oklahoma Democratic Party and asking for your credit card information, please report these suspicious calls to the Oklahoma Democratic Party immediately at (405) 427-3366. The ODP asks that you make note of the phone number and pertinent information about the call so that we can inform the authorities."
