E-mail Scams

Cybercrime is hitting dioceses nationwide. If you receive an email that shows a parish’s pastor or a parish priest as the sender requesting that you send gift cards or account information, rest assured it is a scam. Priests' names have been used in a recent scam, and we want you to know that we will never solicit for funding or ask for favors via email. Parishioners can and should contact the parish to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request received through email. All cybercrime should be reported to the FBI at It is up to the victim of cyber-crimes to file complaints.
