SSP Nightly News: April 30, 2021
Friday, April 30, 2021
It has been brought to the attention of the Archdiocese that a parishioner at another parish received a phone call from a scammer posting as an employee of Our Sunday Visitor (OSV). The scammer explained there was an issue with their online giving donation not going through. The scammer offered to correct the issue so the parish would receive their donation and proceeded to ask for the last four digits of their credit card, their social security number and other credit card information. Thankfully, the parishioner was immediately alerted and ended the call.
OSV is aware of the situation, so there would be no need to notify them if you were to receive such a call.
This scammer seems to be contacting only OSV users, but keep in mind this type of scam can be used for any online payment system. Please know that OSV (or any other online giving provider) would never call or email you to change or correct an online donation. Never give a caller personal information.
Good night, good people.
