If you get one of these requests, don’t reply
A note from the Ohio Conference Leadership Team: It has come to our attention that several Ohio Conference pastors have been hacked recently, supposedly sending out emails and most recently, text messages, asking for gift cards. These requests are, of course, not legitimate. The office of Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost recommends that recipients of these text messages simply block the phone number the request came from. If you are unsure about how to block a caller, you can find information online explaining the process, both for Android and iPhone users. Here is a link to some general instructions for blocking phone numbers: http://bit.ly/HowtoBlock.
