Lawton Police Warn Residents of a Scam

The Lawton Police Department has received information about someone calling Lawton residents and telling them that they are with the City of Lawton Water Department.

According to Lawton Police, the caller is telling residents to purchase a Green Dot card for a specified amount.

The City of Lawton Water Department will never contact residents by phone and request a payment this way.  The city will always contact residents by written correspondence.

If you are contacted by the scammer, Lawton Police want you to let the scammer know that you will contact the Water Department directly for your payment details.
