Several Catholic churches in the Tampa Bay area have been targeted in a scam that tries to get people to believe they are doing a favor for a priest and helping someone in need. "It's really aggravating, but it is obviously very clever, because they are targeting faithful people who are typically generous people and using a public figure in the pastor," said John Boyle, IT administrator for three area parishes.
