A person faked identity of a well known pastor. They asked for prayer requests. I told them about my brother who has cancer in end stages. They replied that my brother would be ok IF I "sowed seed" for a child in an orphanage in UK. Then asked for credit card. I told them I only have debit card. Then, they told me to get help to send money.

That actual pastor would never ask for money.

They even had 2 pics of the pastor and one of the church.

I thank God I thought it must be a scam.


@vienneau63  I'm glad you saw through this scam.
