We’re writing to let you know about a scam email that seems to be targeting churches, including UUCM.
It has come to our attention that several folks connected with UUCM have received an email purporting to be from Rev. Meg, asking for a favor. The reply address on this most recent email is: “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
Apparently, this is happening to other churches, so we’re not alone. More on the scam here: https://kstp.com/news/phishing-scam-targeting-area-churches-minneapolis-st-paul-ardiocese/5287778/
Please ignore any emails you receive from Rev. Meg, Rev. Terri, or Arif that are not from their UUCM email accounts, and if a message appears to be “fishy” please do trust your instinct and call the person who sent it to verify that they did indeed send it.
We have no reason to believe this is anything other than the scam described above, and appreciate your cooperation in ignoring and deleting these annoying messages.
Please don’t hesitate to be in touch if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
