Email scams resurface

Phishing scams have targeted parishes across the archdiocese (and nation) using pastors’ names as their guise.

Should you receive a suspicious email message, delete it. Do not reply because you will engage the scammer (which is what they want) and potentially provide them with more personal information.

Just because an email has Fr. Patrick’s name on it that does not mean it is a legitimate account. All legitimate parish emails end with “@SFBChurch.org” or “@archmil.org.”

If you think a message might be real, please CALL the sender to confirm.
