The Oklahoma Lottery
Commission is warning
Oklahomans of a new
scam circulating throughout
the country seeking to mislead
consumers into believing they
have won a large sum of money.
Recipients receive Facebook and/or text messages
from an individual claiming to be with the DC
Powerball Lottery Grant. They tell the recipient
theyve won a large prize that can be claimed within
48 hours at the D.C. Lottery offices after transferring
$950 to the scammers.
The information in these messages is not legitimate
and is not associated with any officially recognized
lottery, said Rollo Redburn, Executive Director.
If any organization asks you to send an upfront payment in order to claim a prize, you should
immediately contact a reliable source to verify the
information, as it is very likely to be a scam.
Redburn also pointed out that when you play a lottery
game, Lottery employees dont know the identity
of winners until they come forward to claim their
The Oklahoma Lottery security department urges
anyone who receives a communication that could be
a potential scam to contact the Attorney Generals
Office (405-521-3921) or the Federal Trade
Commission (877-382-4357).
If anyone receives messages similar to the above,
they can call the lottery to verify the source at 405522-7700.

I married Orlin Johnson May 4,
1946. We lived in Lucien, renting a
house from Ida Gaines and paid $10
a month for rent. A few years later,
we purchased the house and our rent
was applied to the purchase price. We
lived right next to the bridge on the
west edge of Lucien.
We had a big tree in our yard, right
outside our bedroom. One night, a large
truck had a wreck at the bridge and hit
the tree, which stopped the truck from
coming through the bedroom wall!
While living in Lucien, I worked
at Doc Gaines grocery store. Mabel
Edgar was manager. I also worked at
the Lucien telephone office as a relief
operator when Jean Judson was on

store and then at Montgomery Ward,

that, I worked at Ditch Witch for 18
years, retiring in 1992.
We sold our house on Fir Avenue
in 1977 and built a house on West Fir
which is located between Braums and
Taco Mayo.
Orlin passed away in May of 1988. In
July of 1999 I married Claude Dowell,
who passed away in October, 2005.
In 2011 I sold my home on West Fir
and moved to The Lodge apartments
on the Perry square.
