By Compiled From Wire Services

A quiz show scam exposed on live TV over the weekend came unraveled Tuesday when three people confessed to police.

Among them was a tax agent assigned to monitor the show and make sure it was clean, the ANSA news agency reported.

On live television Sunday night, the show asked a $60,000 question to a telephone caller. The question was changed at the last minute, but the caller answered the original question.
