Cybercrime is hitting the Diocese of Charlotteand Dioceses Nationwide

Dioceses nationwide are reporting impersonation scams against priests and especially pastors. This is an alert warning. ITunes Gift Card Scams- The scam is simple. A parishioner receives an email message supposedly from their pastor or a priest. The message asks, “are you busy?” and when someone responds, the criminal askes for a favor; please buy iTunes gift cards….the scam continues with additional instructions.

Cybercrime is hitting the Diocese of Charlotte and dioceses nationwide. If you receive an email that shows the parish’s pastor or a parish priest as the sender requesting you to purchase an iTunes gift card, rest assured it is a scam. Remind parishioners that they 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 https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx.
