MESSAGE FROM THE DIOCESE:
During the past few months there were a series of phony e-mails being sent to unsuspecting persons (clergy, teachers, parishioners, others) from alleged priests of the Diocese - including a phony one from Bishop Campbell - requesting funds to purchase iTune and other gift cards for alleged charitable and pastoral reasons.
Now there is a new scam - using text messages to convey similar requests.
Please alert people (staffs, parishioners, students, other potentially impacted groups of persons) that if they receive any kind of communication/solicitation they should contact the individual at their parish office, school, or other "real" telephone number to verify the authenticity of the solicitation or, at least to notify the person that a scam is underway using their identity.
Very Rev. Michael J. Lumpe, Vicar for Priests, Diocese of Columbus
