This morning a church member alerted the office that she had received a phishing scam in the form of a text message. The sender claimed to be Pastor Abril and requested a gift card in order to help a person in need. Please be aware that Pastor Abril will never ask for money via a text or email and you should view any such request from any person with suspicion. If you ever have questions or concerns about a request you receive that appears to come from the church or anyone associated with it, please call the office to verify. Unfortunately, these kinds of scams are growing more common and more clever and won’t go away anytime soon.
Thank you & Blessings ~
