Dear Parishioners of OLOP:
It has come to my attention that a couple of parishioners have received emails and text messages stating that I am asking you for a favor. I have included these messages below.
PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND TO THESE AS I DID NOT SEND THEM. THESE ARE A SCAM.
These may be an isolated incident to a couple of parishioners, but nonetheless, please do not respond to them.
God bless you and stay well.
THESE ARE THE SCAM TEXT AND EMAIL MESSAGES
Good Evening, I hope you’re coping well?
I need a favor from you urgently Email me as soon as you get this message.
Sincerely in christ
I just need you to scratch the cards to reveal the pin at the back and have them sent individually to the hospital matron email firstname.lastname@example.org so that it can be disbursed easily to the ill recipients.
