Phishing Email Attacks

Our entire Diocese continues to receive many phishing email attacks. With COVID-19 in the air, hackers are hard at work!!

Recently they have a campaign targeting our Diocese using Philomena Pereira’s name (CEO of Catholic Charities Diocese of Venice) and asking for Gift Cards. Some people are almost falling for this; please don’t be the one.

Warn your fellow parishioners, families, staff, and others that phishing is on the rise during this very sensitive time and they shouldn’t login to strange links or buy gift cards to send via email or txt.

The systems hosted by the diocesan IT department are setup to safeguard us and block viruses. However, you must remain vigilant when clicking links in email and don’t enter your password after clicking a link in an email. The safest action before clicking a link is to verify it is valid by calling the sender on a known-good phone number or checking with us if you are unsure.

God keep us safe,
