It seems that, every few months, someone attempts to scam others. Most recently some may have received an email (purportedly from our pastor) which looks like:
Another SCAM has been to send text messages requesting help with gift cards.
Rest assured these contacts are BOGUS. If Fr. Trask ever needs to ask a favor of you, he’ll be making a one-on-one contact with you → whether in person or via an actual phone call; he NEVER ask favors via email/text.
And should you ever find Fr. Trask asking for money, he’ll only ever ask that you put it in the Sunday collection basket! 😉
If you reply to this SCAM, you’ll be asked to buy and send gift card codes. DO NOT BUY CARDS OR SEND CODES! If you’re feeling generous, put it in the Sunday collection basket instead!
