Sheriff's Department warns of scam targeting church members

Door County church members are being targeted by an email scam.  The Door County Sheriff's Department was notified of an email to a member of a local church from an alleged priest seeking donations.  Chief Deputy Pat McCarty says the email was written to appeal to a person's sense of Christmas generosity.



The email recipient brought it to their minister who then contacted the sheriff's office.  McCarty says, so far, nobody in Door County has been taken by the scam.
