Northwest Iowa authorities are alerting the public to yet another new scam.

Authorities in Sioux County say they've had reports from people receiving text messages from someone claiming to be a local church pastor stating they have a friend in the hospital sick with cancer requesting gift cards be purchased and sent to the caller.

Authorities say it's a scam and that you shouldn't respond to the message or provide any information.
