MIAMI, FL, USA, February 20, 2024 / — USPA Nationwide Security has uncovered a disturbing, new organized criminal network targeting US-based Christian youth pastors through an aggressive phishing scam. The company is issuing a warning to US-based religious pastors and the public to shed light on the tactics employed by these criminals.

The phishing scam unfolds with the pastor receiving a personalized text message, alleging access to compromising photos and/or old online accounts, such as outdated dating profiles or other potentially compromising sites. The scammers, in a bid to exploit their victims, demand a small sum of money, typically ranging between $300 and $500, and insist on payment in Bitcoin to prevent traceability.

“These criminal networks employ sophisticated tactics to hide their identities and conceal their locations and connection details,” warns Fitzgibbons, an investigator from USPA Nationwide Security. “We urge the public, especially the community leaders being targeted, to exercise extreme caution and refrain from engaging with these criminals.”

USPA Nationwide Security emphasizes the critical importance of not responding to these phishing attempts, as doing so may exacerbate the situation. Unfortunately, some individuals have broken under the pressure of harassment, responding to the scammers’ demands.

“Making a payment to these criminals is only inviting them to up the ante,” Fitzgibbons said.

USPA Nationwide Security encourages anyone who has received phishing attempts of this nature to immediately report them to the Federal Trade Commission. If you have questions about the scam, or pertinent information to share, you are urged to contact USPA Nationwide Security Investigator, Brian Fitzgibbons, at [email protected] or by phone at 800-214-1448, extension 4.
