Bishop Johnson's E-mail Scammed

December 06, 2018

Bishop Johnson is aware that her name is being used by a scammer for phishing purposes.  Please just disregard and report as spam.

There has been a surge of attempts of phishing by very sophisticated scammers who pose as Bishop Johnson requesting gift cards and money using an email address that seems like hers. 
 
Please urge everyone within your congregations NOT to respond to any email seeking money of any sort in a “personal” email from the Bishop.

As a rule of thumb, please check the email address, not just the name, to verify the sender.

Thank you for your concern.
