Viber Scam

Our pastor Fr. Bao's official church e-mail address is "bthai@stceciliak8.org" and office phone number is "714-544-3250". Recently the scammers created three (3) different e-mail addresses (fr.bthaii@gmail.com, frbaothai@gmail.com, frbathai@gmail.com) and their text number (410-921-3274) and sent their fake e-mails and texts to ask our parishioners money or gift cards. 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.” May God forgive them and give them grace to amend their lives better.
