This morning I have received several calls from Lord of Life members that tell me the scammers have struck Lord of Life. A FAKE email address has been set up on gmail that **appears** to be my email address BUT IT IS NOT MY EMAIL.
I AM NOT SOLICITING THE PURCHASE OF GIFT CARDS. NOR IS PASTOR ERIKA. IF YOU RECEIVE A REQUEST THAT APPEARS TO BE FROM ME — PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND TO IT. You may ignore it, I am aware that it has been sent out.
Last week I sent you a warning that about Scammers that were targeting congregation members of other ELCA congregations, asking people to purchase gift cards for needy families….and it appears that they have struck us now.
I’m saddened that someone would take advantage of our trust in each other and try to benefit from it.
