There is a scam circulating around the Archdiocese of Miami, involving the pastors and parishioners. The scams come by email or text, stating to be Fr. Michael. The scams ask for gift cards (itunes, Amazon or even cash).
DO NOT RESPOND. FR. MICHAEL WOULD NEVER TEXT OR EMAIL ANY PARISHIONER AND ASK FOR MONEY OR FAVORS.
We believe these calls are generated outside the US. And they are gathering information from the websites and bulletins. You can report the scam to your cell phone carrier and the number can be blocked from your phone.
