A Houston reader called the Herald office today to report a scam received through the mail on Tuesday. 

The letter carried the message from “Reader’s Digest Corp. Claim Services” that she had won $75,000 and needed to cash a check of $3,053.75 to arrange delivery of the windfall and validate the claim. The recipient said she called Reader’s Digest and was told the mailing was a scam.

Here’s a link to what sounds like a similar matter.
