Dear Friends of Jesus Christ at PUMC,
Many of you have recently been contacted by someone purporting to me. The imposter is claiming that I’m in a prayer meeting and need discrete assistance. This is a scam. If you reply, you’ll receive a fraudulent request for financial assistance. The scammer is using the email address . Please delete and block that email address.
For future reference, I will never make that kind of request from you. If you ever receive an email, text, or other form of communication that you do not understand, from someone claiming to be me, please contact me directly.
Grace and Peace,
Rev. Will White, Lead Pastor of Pender UMC
