Email Scam Alert!! Again!!

Seems like just yesterday we ran an announcement to warn everyone about possible scam emails (actually, it was just two weeks ago) and a new crop of scammers is at it again!
Occasionally, spam emails or texts may be sent to church members that appear to be from a staff member or a church email address or cell phone. Most of the time, if you look at the wording, the language sounds strange, asks for odd things and the request may seem inappropriate. Check the actual email address at the top, not just the name listed with the email address.
These emails and texts are NOT from our minister or anyone at First Unitarian Church. Please do not respond to those emails and do not follow the request to purchase gifts cards or send money to the sender.
NO ONE from our staff or leadership will ever ask you to urgently purchase gifts cards (or other monetary items) or otherwise ask for emergency assistance. Please contact the church office with any questions at officemgr@firstuuwilm.org. You can also report the spam to your email service provider, to the mobile phone provider, or to Google.
Use your spam filter tools as well to mark any spam email as junk. Over time, your spam filter learns what to trust and what not to trust. Spam is ever present in our lives; be alert. Thank you!
