Several members have reported receiving an email from "Pastor Tony" asking to do a favor or to buy gift cards. We had a similar issue happen a couple of years ago from "Pastor Michael" saying they are in a meeting and to reply if you can help.
If you click on the "from" field, you will notice that the email is a fake Gmail account made to look like our church emails. The message this time is from "firstname.lastname@example.org" which is NOT the email that former Pastor Tony had with us. Anything official from the church comes from an email with @fpcedgewood.org.
Please block this sender and delete the message. Most likely Tony is unaware this was sent as it is not from him (in fact, his @fpcedgewood.org account doesn't even exist anymore since he's been gone almost a year). You will never receive a request like this from any of the church staff.
