You are scaling in local space instead of worldspace that's why( I guess)

Double click on the scale tool in the toolbox, and in the toolbar, select reset. Should work.

As I have said before you are scaling in local space :
-1- Press r to activate scale
-2-press and hold R, then while holding R, LMB in the viewport
-3-A hotbox like thing appaers
-4-Go to select and then select global

If this doesn't work, freeze the transformations:
Modify-->freeze transformations

Good luck
