The Unitarian Universalist Association Website has an interesting article about phishing, titled “Phishing: don’t take the bait!”
“Someone calls the church office describing an emergency, claiming to be a staff member or leader. They have been robbed and need money wired to them ASAP.
“Or congregation members receive emails that are requesting gift card donations for a charitable cause.
“Religious groups and congregations are becoming easy targets for these types of scams. It’s important for congregational leaders inform their members about these and similar scam and educate everyone on the official channels your congregation uses to accept donations.” There is more on the site.
