Attention: Please be Aware of this Scam!

Please be wary of scams where people claim to be Fr. Cocco and ask for money or gift cards. They create emails that are similar to the 'official' St. Edmond email, and sometimes send texts as well. We NEVER use texts to request things and although we sometimes send emails to collect for various ministries, we NEVER ask for a credit card over the phone or online as we do not sell gift cards in the office. If gift cards are needed (as they sometimes are at Christmas time) we ask you bring them to us. Unfortunately, in our world today, there are people who continue to commit fraud and cheat good honest people who are trying to do the right thing. If there's ever a question, don't hesitate to call the office first before you buy. We're sorry that we can't stop people from doing this but want to make sure you're aware that it is happening again.
