CYBERCRIME is hitting dioceses nationwide. If you receive an email or text message from the pastor or any priest requesting you to purchase a gift card or transfer funds by wire, be forewarned, IT IS A SCAM. NOBODY DOES THAT. Parishioners should contact the parish office to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request received through email or text.

DO NOT REPLY TO THE ORIGINAL EMAIL OR TEXT NO MATTER HOW PERSUASIVE.

All cybercrime should be reported to the FBI at https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx. It is up to the victim of cyber-crimes to file complaints.
