Email Scam!!!

May 1, 2020

Please be aware that we have had another email scam come to our attention at the synod office.

It looks like this:

==============================

Hi, how are you doing?

I need a favor from you, email me as soon as you get this message.

God Bless,

Bishop. Kevin Strickland

===============================

DO NOT REPLY. This is a scam looking for your to buy gift cards. THIS IS NOT FROM BISHOP STRICKLAND nor is it from the synod office.

Someone is creating an email address that mimics Bishop Strickland's email address and asking for you to "email him back" or "asking if you can purchase gift cards for him or on his behalf."

Please report this to https://support.google.com/mail/contact/abuse

The synod has already reported this as a phishing scam.


Thank you for your help!
