It has come to our attention that fake emails pretending to be Fr. Gase requesting assistance have been received by members of our community (in fact, Father received an email from someone pretending to be him!). This has become a very popular scam across the country in which internet scammers pretend to be members of the clergy and request gift cards, financial assistance, or other various forms of assistance. Please note that Fr. Gase will NEVER ask for money via email and that any email from him will originate from firstname.lastname@example.org.
These scams, due to their popularity across the country, have even come to the attention of the Federal Trade Commission. More information can be found here: https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2019/07/worshipers-targeted-gift-card-scam.« Back to Blog
