|Telephone Scam Alert||The Diocese of Greensburg has learned of a Caller ID Spoofing scam in at least one of our parishes. People have reported to the parish that they have received a call that shows on their Caller ID as being from the parish. In this particular “spoofing,” the caller claims to be selling something on behalf of the parish. Our parish does not give its telephone resources and parishioners’ phone numbers to any outside sales organization. If you suspect you are the recipient of a “spoofing” call, inform Father Willie, then contact your telephone service provider for information on how to prevent the scam. Most importantly, never give ANY personal information over the phone to someone you don’t know - especially your Social Security number, bank account number or credit card number. “Spoofing” is one method used to get that personal information for fraudulent use.|
