Text Scam Alert March 24 2021

Dear Saltwater Community,

I hope that you and your family are well.

Several members of the community reported receiving a text message today signed “Rev. Kristen Kuriga” but from a different phone number than Rev. Kristen’s cell phone number.

THIS IS NOT A LEGITIMATE REQUEST. IT IS A SCAM!

Do not respond to this message and please block the phone number. The number this scam was generated from was 509-400-6025.

Ministers throughout the country are experiencing increased scam attempts. Most often, this happens through the person creating a fake email account that looks like the minister’s account. We have also heard of scam attempts through texting and calling through zoom accounts.

Please know that Rev. Kristen will not contact you through these means for gifts cards or urgent requests for a favor or support. If an email, text or communication does not sound like it is from Rev. Kristen, it probably isn’t. Please check before responding to anything if you have questions.
