But you should.
Scammers are sending out emails to members of religious congregations, asking for “a favor.” They appear to come from that congregation’s spiritual leader and say, “email me as soon as you get this message.” Once you reply, you get another email asking that you buy eBay gift cards to help a friend who’s hospitalized with cancer. The friend, according to the email, needs the cards to download music and videos “to boost his confidence on his next phase of surgery.”
The clergy member promises to pay you back for the cards, requested in denominations of up to $1,000. Of course, this will never happen because you are corresponding with an imposter. The best protection is to contact the clergy member or the congregation office directly to see if the request is kosher.
