Phone Scam

Kingsway,
 
We want to inform you of a recent phone scam targeting organizations in the area. Our staff has received two separate calls reporting Kingsway being targeted in a VoIP-based scam. Criminals use software to “spoof” the Caller ID when calling someone so that it read as if the call is coming from Kingsway Christian Church. Once the call is answered, the scammers then act as a financial institution requesting personal and financial information.
 
We met with Officer Howell from The Avon Police Department to file a formal report. Unfortunately, scammers that tamper with Caller ID over VoIP is almost impossible to track. We want you to know that Kingsway will never call to ask for personal or financial information over the phone. If you receive any calls like these or if you feel your information has been compromised, please contact your local police department to file a formal police report.
 
Thank you,
The Kingsway Staff
