Email Scam Affecting Parishes

Email Scam Affecting Parishes

Parishes within the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis continue to be subjected to email scams.  Scammers are using Gmail to create fake email accounts using pastor’s names and are sending messages requesting favors.

IMPORTANT: If Father Erickson contacts you via email, it will only come from his Transfiguration account with the domain “”. 

He will not request that you send him cash, iTunes gift cards, or any other sort of favor via an email.  It is critical that you verify the sending email address and never respond to a message if you cannot verify the sending address and/or if you question the source.  

Please contact the parish office if you have additional questions.
