Urgent: Our Sunday Visitor Scam
: It has been brought to the Archdiocese of St. Louis' attention that a parishioner at St. Raphael received a phone call from a scammer posting as an employee of Our Sunday Visitor, OSV. The scammer explained there was an issue with their online giving donation not going through. The scammer offered to correct the issue so the parish would receive their donation and proceeded to ask for the last four digits of their credit card, their social security number and other credit card information. Thankfully, the parishioner was immediately alerted and ended the call. OSV is aware of the situation, so there is no need to notify them.
Currently they are only aware of this scammer contacting OSV users, but keep in mind this type of scam can be used for any online payment system.
Please remember OSV (or other online giving providers) would never call or email them to change or correct an online donation and never give a caller personal information.
