Email security update – Realm

Dear First Parish Arlington,
We write to you to let you know of an email scam that circulated in this community. Someone impersonated a First Parish lay leader and, unfortunately, a First Parish member fell for the phishing scam this morning. This involved them sharing a pdf of all the names in our database. Included in this were the phone numbers and email addresses of the adults listed in our system. We are so sorry this happened. Please be assured that the Realm database remains secure and no financial information or physical addresses were released. The Realm support line does recommend everyone change their passwords.
This link can help us all recognize future phishing scams.
When in doubt, you can call the First Parish Office to determine a communication’s validity.
Please know your ministers, staff, and governing board are available if you have questions or concerns.
In faith,
The First Parish Office
