We have been made aware that individuals have received phone calls with the name St. John of the Cross showing up on their caller id, when in fact the call was not from SJC. Please know that if a staff member of St. John of the Cross were to call you, he or she would not ask you for personal information. Some staff members have been calling parishioners, but only to ask if there is anything we can do for you.
There is also a common email scam to be aware of in which the sender poses as someone else. Never respond to an email from Fr. Reszel, or anyone else asking for a favor. We will never ask you to purchase gift cards or anything of the sort.
Here are some tips from the Better Business Bureau on how to avoid scams.
