The Door County Sheriff's Department has sent out a warning to the public about an ongoing scam in which people are posing as clergy and requesting gift cards.

In one case, scammers sent an email to parishioners requesting an iTunes gift card for someone they claimed was battling cancer. In an additional case, no money was exchanged.

DCSO advises people to reach out to their priest/pastor to verify any requests for money received by text or email.
