Spam alert from the Council of Bishops

September 03, 2013


According to the United Methodist Council of Bishops, scammers are placing calls to churches and conference staff attempting to solicit money. Using names of bishops and other information in order to sound legitimate, they are using the story that "----- got in trouble while traveling overseas and needs help." Please be assured no bishop would make such a call, and you are encouraged to report any calls to the Federal Trade Commission by clicking here.
