Officials with Catholic Charities, based in Jackson, say a man selling magazines and claiming to be seeking a scholarship does not represent the organization.

Greg Patin, the executive director of Jackson-based Catholic Charities, says there are reports the man goes into neighborhoods asking for money for the organization and other charities to earn 20,000 points for a cash prize to get to London.

Patin says the man gives the donor a "tax deductible receipt" and a card that reads Supreme Marketing Inc.

Patin says Catholic Charities is not associated with the man or Supreme Marketing. He says similar scams have been reported in Georgia and Florida.
