SYOSSET, NY [OCA]
It has come to the attention of the Chancery of the Orthodox Church in America that individuals, including some OCA clergy, have been receiving e-mails and telephone calls from an unknown individual or individuals presenting themselves as members of the Holy Synod of Bishops requesting emergency funds for various causes and asking that funds be directed to specified venues.
These appeals are scams and should not be honored. None of the members of the Holy Synod are soliciting funds by e-mail or phone.
Those receiving such calls or e-mails, or desiring additional information, are invited to contact Archpriest Eric G. Tosi, OCA Secretary, at 516-922-0550 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
