Email Scam Alert from the Diocese of Saskatoon

By News No Comments

Unfortunately, we live in an age when personal data can be misused by scam artists.  Several persons in the Diocese of Saskatoon have recently received fraudulent emails purporting to be from our bishop or pastors.  The Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon, clergy, and entities such as parishes or ministries will never solicit personal or business information in such a way.  Should you receive an unsolicited request for such information or for “emergency funds”, exercise extreme caution. Contact the person or office by using official contact information only.  Do not use contact information provided in the potential fraudulent request.
