Why don't you start by telling us what type of scooter you have: Brand, model, 2 stroke or 4 stroke...

If you ran it out of oil, & if it's a 2 stroke, Pull the exhaust from the cylinder & check for scoring on the piston or cylinder.. If it was run without oil, be it a 2 or 4 stroke, I only assume the engine will need some major repairs... Hope I'm wrong,, Roger
