Fraud Alert: Spoofing emails being sent from fake address

7/15/2020

The conference office has been notified of a spoofing email making the rounds to various South Georgia United Methodists appearing as a message from Bishop Bryan. This most recent email is from "bishoprlawsonbryan@gmail.com," a fake, spoofed email account that has NO ties to Bishop Bryan.

Please know that the Bishop will never ask for a donation, gift cards, or any kind of transfer of money via email.

We recommend that you don't open attachments or give your personal information to anyone unless you are sure about the email address.

We have reported the account and ask that you submit/flag the email to your provider as spam. Please do not forward the email to anyone.

Remember now and in the future that the conference sends emails from official conference email addresses only.

Anytime you receive what seems to be a suspicious email, check the South Georgia Conference website for confirmation before clicking links or responding to the email.
