Act fast to freeze out religious gift card scammers

Fraudsters are sending out email and text messages that look as if they originated from someone at your church, synagogue, or mosque asking you to buy some gift cards to give to needy congregants or others in the community. Many of these bogus requests mention someone battling cancer.

If you realize you’ve been victimized and contact the company within a few hours of your purchase, it might be able to freeze the account to prevent the scammers from accessing the money loaded on that card.
