FROM THE IT DIRECTOR: Tips on how to spot Spoofing Emails

Email spoofing is the forgery of an email header so that the message appears to have originated from someone other than the actual source (usually someone you know). It is often used to trick people in giving up information or send money.

Don’t trust the display name, always look at the from email address to make sure it is a real email that you know.

Check for spelling mistakes

Don’t give up personal information

Beware of urgent or threatening language in the subject line

If you are not sure, call the person or send them an email to ask them. Don't reply to the suspect email, send them a new email to the address you have in your contacts. 

For more information contact Ian Fawcett at ifawcett@rcdony.org

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM WEEK: June 22-29

Religious freedom gives us the space to carry out the mission that Jesus has entrusted to the Church. Religious freedom means that Catholics, and all people of goodwill, are free to seek the truth and to live in accordance with that truth, and so to strengthen our common life as a nation. Beginning June 22, the Feast of Saints Thomas More and John Fisher, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops celebrates Religious Freedom Week. In the midst of our current challenges, join us as we seek the kingdom and find Strength in Hope. Learn more at www.usccb.org/ReligiousFreedomWeek
