MACON COUNTY -- Authorities are warning of a scam. People are getting phone calls from someone claiming to be with Reader's Digest. They're telling people they've won lots of money, but need to send in thousands of dollars to get the prize.

Then a second person calls claiming to be Sheriff Tom Schneider saying the cash prize is real. The sheriff's office says it's not real and you should not give out any personal information.
