Fraud Alert: Spoofing emails being sent from fake address

August 31 2021

The district office has been notified of a spoofing email making the rounds to various South Georgia United Methodists appearing as a message from Rev. Grantham. This most recent email is from a fake, spoofed email account that has NO ties to Rev. Grantham. 

Please know that the District Superintendent will never ask for a donation, gift cards, or any kind of transfer of money via email.

We recommend that you don't open attachments or give your personal information to anyone unless you are sure about the email address. 

The email address being used is: steve.sgaumc@gmail.com.  Please submit/flag the email address to your provider as spam. Please do not forward the email to anyone.

Remember now and in the future that the district sends emails from official conference email addresses only.

Anytime you receive what seems to be a suspicious email, check the district website for confirmation before clicking links or responding to the email.
