    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A consumer scam that targets utility customers is prompting warnings from the Oklahoma Corporation Commission and Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company. The scam was uncovered in a regular audit the Corporation Commission performs of social media to look for signs of deceptive practices and consumer scams. Commission officials say the scammers are well-versed in details about OG&E and even knew the location of its headquarters. The scam begins with a phone call to a utility customer warning of an overdue payment. There is a call-back number that has a greeting identical to the utility's real greeting. The consumer then talks to a "customer service" person who requests a credit card number. Utility officials say initial contact regarding past due accounts is done by mail, not by telephone.

    GM)--Leonardo’s Children’s Museum has received a $50,000 commitment from Koch Fertilizer to reach its $6 million capital campaign goal. "A donation of this magnitude qualifies Koch Fertilizer for a naming opportunity, and they have elected to become part of the hands-on agriculture exhibit,” said Julie Baird, Leonardo's executive director. The agriculture exhibit will be constructed as part of Phase 2 of construction, which will start in the fall. Even though Leonardo’s has reached the $6 million goal, a few needs remain. “Since the construction is taking place in a building that is almost 110 years old, there have been several surprises that had to be updated or fixed, so we are continuing to accept donations,” campaign co-chair Susan Bowers said. “We believe it will actually cost between $6.1 million and $6.2 million to do everything.” Leonardo's began construction of Phase 1 in August. It includes new permanent exhibits on the museum's first floor, new and refreshed exhibits on the second floor and an exterior facelift. The museum is scheduled to reopen in April. Phase 2 construction, which includes the rest of the second floor will begin this fall and will be completed in the spring of 2017. The museum will not have to close again for the second phase of construction. Limited naming opportunities still are available. For information about making a personal or corporate gift to the campaign, contact Baird, jbaird@leonardos.org or call (580) 237-0009, extension 103.
