Cybercrime is hitting the Diocese of Charlotteand Dioceses Nationwide

Dioceses nationwide are reporting impersonation scams against priests and especially pastors. This is an alert warning. ITunes Gift Card Scams- The scam is simple. A parishioner receives an email message supposedly from their pastor or a priest. The message asks, “are you busy?” and when someone responds, the criminal askes for a favor; please buy iTunes gift cards….the scam continues with additional instructions.

Cybercrime is hitting the Diocese of Charlotte and dioceses nationwide. If you receive an email that shows the parish’s pastor or a parish priest as the sender requesting you to purchase an iTunes gift card, rest assured it is a scam. Remind parishioners that they can and should contact the parish to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request received through email.  All cybercrime should be reported to the FBI at

My name is Dave Maher,  I run a security team for adoration from 10pm Friday night until 6AM Saturday morning, on the 3rd weekend of each month.  I have several members of my team "retiring".  A security shift is for 2 hours and the task is to make sure the parking lot is safe and that someone is in adoration of the Eucharist at all times. I have 4 teams of 2 people each.  I need help from 2-4am and from  4-6am.  I would also like to have some "Substitutes" who could cover for the regular team members if they cannot make their scheduled time.              You can contact me by email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
