PLEASE BE AWARE
The gift card scam is going around again.
respond to these messages/emails and report them if you receive one. They are not coming from Fr. John or anyone affiliated with St. Chris. The SCAM texts/emails usually address you by name from someone posing to be Fr. John, asking for gift cards for a friend in need or something to that effect.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES
would a priest, or any member of the parish, school, or child care staff, ever send you a text or email asking you for gift cards.
If this happens to you, please notify Bonnie at the parish office and report the incident as suggested below:
- If it is an email, look up the SCAM REPORTING procedures for your email platform.
- If it is via an iPhone text message, tap Report Junk under the message. You can also block unwanted messages and calls.
- If it is via any other text message service, please contact your cell phone service provider for further guidance.
