It has come to our attention that there is a sophisticated email scam that has reached some of our parishioners. We believe they somehow target specific members of the parish impersonating our paster’s email by name and even reference other member’s names to appear legitimate. This information may be gleamed from social media or other publicly available means where names appear together.
Never respond to requests asking you to purchase gift cards on behalf of our church. Use your email system to make the sender as spam and delete the emails. Do not engage with these imposters.
Legitimate email from our parish would come with an email address ending in @hamiltondiocese.com. Even if the DISPLAY AS name is something you recognize, check the actual email address before you assume the message is legitimate. WE DO NOT distribute or sell our parishioners' private contact details.
