Phishing emails continue to be sent out purporting to be from Bishop Sharma Lewis and clergy from around the Virginia Conference (see sample below).
Phishing is when an email is sent using words in the email or pretends to be from an account they are not. Usually, they are asking for action from you, such as sending funds, purchasing gift cards, sending an email, your credentials, etc. These are almost always sent from criminal organizations. You will also notice it contains improper English.
If you recognize a phishing email, DELETE it. Please know Bishop Lewis and our clergy would not issue this type of request.
Please share this information with members of your congregation as you are able.
