We’re writing to let you know about a scam email that seems to be targeting churches, including UUCM. Apparently, this is happening to other churches, so we’re not alone. More on the scam here.
Phishing emails continue to get more sophisticated and troublesome. Please be extra cautious and communicative if you are not sure about a request. If you receive an email or text message that appears to be from a UUCM minister, staff or church member asking you for a favor, money or to purchase gift cards, please be sure to always speak with the alleged sender directly (call them) BEFORE giving money or purchasing gift cards of any kind.
A reminder that any communication from UUCM staff will come from the church email alias @uucmtka.org.
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 at email@example.com if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
