The Skiatook Police Department issued a warning about prescription cards being sent in the mail.

Police say the cards are coming out in a mass mailing including four discount cards that claim to give users up to 75% off prescriptions.

Police say they talked to several local pharmacists and they have advised that if you use the card your personal information will be sent to the company that sent the card. Police say it is unclear what the company does with that information.

Police say one pharmacist told them the company has been known to add on additional fees for using the card that users pay when paying for the prescription.

The Skiatook Police Department is urging people to use caution with the unsolicited cards and contact your pharmacist before using the cards.

Somebody said that there was no free lunch. Aside from that this sounds like a scam issued through the USPS. Could lead to BIG trouble :-/
