Fake e-mails asking for gift cards
Our pastor Fr. Bao’s official church e-mail address is “firstname.lastname@example.org” and office phone number is “714-544-3250”. Recently the scammers created FIVE (5) different gmail addresses (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com) and their text number (410-921-3274) and sent their fake e-mails and texts to ask our parishioners cash or gift cards by scratching the pin number on the back of the gift cards. Take a picture and e-mail that picture to them. Be assured that those were never and never sent out to you by our pastor Fr. Bao. You may wish to reply back to the scammers a short note to ask them to stop and indicate that “we know their trick very well.” Then you block both the scammers’ fake e-mail addresses and text number. One says, “Doing wrong is bad. Staying in the wrong is worse.” We pray that they asap amend their lives better, and may God forgive them.
