Dear Colleagues and Members of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church:
Greetings in the Wondrous Name of Jesus the Christ!
This message is being sent to all members throughout our Connectional Church regarding an extortion scam that is circulating around the country.
Please be aware that there is a scam going on at this time requesting money from our pastors and churches to aid family members of the CME College of Bishops. There is no truth to this information. At no time should you send money to these persons. Before you respond to any general request for such aid, please contact your Presiding Prelate or Presiding Elder.
Please pass this information on to as many of our Connectional members as possible.
Your prompt attention to this message is appreciated.
In His Service,
Bishop Henry M. Williamson, Sr.
Chairman of the Commission on Social Justice and Human Concerns
of the Christian Methodist Episcopal Church
Presiding Prelate, Ninth Episcopal District
