Email Scam Targets Parishioners
Tuesday, August 20, 2019
Florida Catholic

The Archdiocese of Miami has been hearing reports of people receiving emails from scammers impersonating clergy, asking to verify personal information on a document titled “Archdiocese of Miami Proposal”. If you, your friends or family have received emails like this, please do not open the attachment, do not respond, and delete the email. Clergy would never ask you to verify personal information online.

You can report the scam to Florida’s Consumer Protection Division by visiting www.myfloridalegal.com and filling out a complaint form, or calling the Fraud Hotline, 1-866-966-7226

“Everything I have is yours.” (Luke 15:31)

We can hear God speaking to us today in the words of the father to his elder son: “You are with me always and everything I have is yours.”

What is my response to such remarkable generosity?
Our Heavenly Father gives us everything, including the chance to share in His eternal kingdom. Yet, like the Prodigal Son we are often lured away by the materialism of our society.

Do I give joyfully and generously as God gives to me or do I turn my back on all that God offers in exchange for a material wealth that has no lasting value?
