Beware of scammers posing as ministers

Church congregations in Door and Kewaunee counties are being warned about emails from those posing as ministers seeking gift card donations. The Door County Sheriff's Department reports this type of scam is on the increase this holiday season.  Investigators say the emails look convincing and claim to be from local faith communities.  Sergeant Investigator Jason Stenzel says if anyone emails or calls you asking for money, banking information or even gift cards, get verification.  He says law enforcement can also help you if you still have questions.




Sergeant Stenzel says, so far, no one has fallen victim to this scam.  He also says such scams move in cycles and can use different approaches to illegally obtain cash or banking information.
