    HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - The Garland County Sheriff's Office is warning of a telephone scam that has already cost at least one victim $2,700.

    The sheriff's department said in a news release Monday that a caller told the victim that she had won a new Mercedes-Benz and $2.5 million - but had to first send a $2,700 security deposit.

    The woman sent the money but received nothing in return.

    The victim told authorities that she was contacted by a company that called itself "Insider Viewpoint."
