Beware spoofed emails

Beware spoofed emails 640 495 Episcopalians in Connection

We have been made aware that Bishop Smith has once again been a target of email spoofing – this one an elaborate request for Ebay gift cards for cancer patients.

Things to remember:

  1. Bishop Smith, or anyone from the diocesan office, will NEVER email you a request for gift cards.
  2. As with any questionable email, always check the sender’s actual email address. Even though the sender line says Rev. George Wayne Smith, the email address was a gmail account, not Bishop Smith’s diocesan email address.
  3. Bishop Smith is a gifted writer and accurate speller. The message in question contained several atrocious spelling and grammatical errors.
