Recognizing and Avoiding Email Scams
Please be aware that someone started sending emails from an address that looked similar to Father Ken’s email address. These emails were in fact a hacker. Ignore and delete these emails. Do not respond to emails sent from a fake email account or click on any content within the email. Do not give out your personal information over the phone; the IRS, your bank, the government, etc., will never call or email you asking for personal information.

It is easy to be fooled by some of the spam content that comes through your inbox, but I have gathered some information to help arm yourself against hackers. Number one rule is to never share your personal information on the internet, through email, or over the phone. Your bank, government affiliates, and most likely your friends and family will never ask you to send them money, click a third-party link or request personal information via email. Again, never share your personal information or respond to emails you may think are spam. Here are a few rules to go by:
  1. ·       Know who is sending you emails
  2. ·       Look for typos, grammatical errors, and phrasing
  3. ·       Never open or download attachments unless you know what they are
  4. ·       Do not give out personal information

If you want to read more on how to defend against scam emails, I have included two articles, one from Return Path Blog and one from wikihow.com which gives you examples of that spam email looks like, click here to read the article. I have also included a PDF from the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT). Learn how to spot a fake email or spam and be aware of what you put on the internet. Make sure you use strong passwords to help protect you and your information from internet hackers.

warm regards,
Katie Ernst

A Prayer For This Week

God our desire,
whose coming we look for,
but whose arrival is unexpected:
Here in the darkness make us urgent to greet you,
and open yourself to our longing
that we may be known by you through Jesus Christ,

Praise Lifetime Psalm 139
Praise my soul, our good Lord.
Sing songs to God’s name, for God has brought my life into fresh waters when I was thirsty.
God has fed me with the Bread of Life when I was starving.
God has sustained me along all my days and never has put me to shame.
Praise my soul, our good Lord, for such abundant goodness.

"Blessed are those who trust in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.
They shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream.
It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green;
in the year of drought, it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit."
Jeremiah 17:7-8. 
Daily Prayer for All Seasons
