St. James parishioners should be aware on two occasions in November and one in December (12/18/19) several members of the church received fraudlent email messages, the first purportedly from our former rector, Joel Hafer, and the second and third purportedly from our interim rector, The Rev. Dr. Carol Jablonski. These messages convey a friendly greeting and then ask the recipient to respond by return email, saying "I need to ask you a favor" and/or to purchase iTunes cards and to send them to a fake gmail address using their smart phones. All of these "phishing" emails are SCAMS. None of them originated from Joel or Carol. Please do not open them or respond to them. The following guidelines (provided by Amy Williford) will help you identify and deal with email phishing attempts. Please take a moment to read them carefully. Thank you.
