Scams aimed at United Methodists

There have been reports of phone scams of people misrepresenting themselves as church officials asking for money and emails requesting credit card information. According to an article by Sybil Davidson in the October edition of the Advocate, there are three scams. The first is a person claiming to be a United Methodist Bishop saying that his daughter has broken down and needs you to buy her a prepaid credit card to get back on the road. Another is a person calls a church to speak to the pastor about someone with AIDS and solicits donations to an organization that does not exist. A third is an email from a false United Methodist Council that asks for a credit card number. The United Methodist Church will never solicit funds though an email. All matters of money come though the mail on official letterhead. It is important to thoroughly research any organization before making any donation.
