Dear Friends of St. John's,

We call your attention to a phone scam operation.

People are being falsely solicited for money by someone indicating she or he is from St. John's Lutheran Ministries. Caller identification indicates that these phone calls originate from St. John's, although this is not true. Suspects have been soliciting to actual household names, which can easily be acquired online.

Local law enforcement and the FBI have been made aware of this happening and are investigating.

If you receive a call that in any way makes you suspicious, please do not send money. With rare exception, St. John's does not engage in phone solicitation for funding support. If you have any question about a call received, you are welcome to phone St. John's at 655-5600 and ask for the St. John's Foundation Office.
