OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) â€” Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt is issuing a warning about a lottery scam that he says cost one couple $20,000.
Pruitt says the couple reported that a man told them they had won the lottery and a new car â€” but had to first pay taxes and fees up front. The couple also said the man told them he knew Pruitt and that the transactions were approved by the attorney general's office.

June is here, and my schedule for this month is on my fridge. When Paula penciled in the games, I could not believe that we only had one day off in the month.
Of course, we had a rainout, and I have rescheduled a game for that day. I have decided that I may have to go back to work to get some rest.
On the bright side, that rain out gave me a chance to do some fishing with Chuck Restine.
We headed to Lake Tenkiller and tried to catch some smallmouth bass. I managed to catch one, along with a couple of black bass and a couple of sand bass.
