Fr. Kevin "Phishing Scam"

Currently an individual(s) is using fake email account(s) to impersonate Father Kevin, asking OLG parishioners via email to send him/her gift cards personally for pastoral activities. Unfortunately this type of fraudulent activity – called “phishing” – is also effecting other parishes across the Archdiocese of St. Paul & Minneapolis.

The Parish Office asks that you take the following steps should you receive this type of email:

  1. Verify the email address in the “From” field. Phishing messages to OLG parishioners are not from the email address that Father Kevin always uses to conduct pastoral activities - frfinnegan@olgparish.org.

  2. Do not follow any of the instructions contained within the email.

  3. Delete the message immediately.

As we continue in making Jesus Christ known and loved, thank you for your attention and due diligence on this important matter.
