Legal Aid has learned that there are scam artists posing as Legal Aid and targeting Oklahomans.
These scamster's are claiming that you can get money from the "Obama Debt Relief" program... which does not exist.
Theives are after your personal, confidential information so they can take your identity, steal your money and credit.
They will call or send a letter that looks like an official voucher.
They may have just enough information about you to sound legitimate... but they are not.
Legal Aid never intiates phone calls. We do return phone calls to applicants.
Legal Aid never charges a fee for assistance.
Legal Aid helps low income and elderly Oklahomans with civil (not criminal) legal problems.
If you think you have been scammed, please call Legal Aid at 1-888-534-5243.
