Amazon Scam Email Not from our Vicar

Several residents have reported receiving an email that claims to be sent from our vicar, Rev. Canon Sue Oliver, requesting the recipient to purchase Amazon Gift Cards.

These emails are coming from a masked email account micgan90@gmail.com

The email read something like:

“Here is what I want you to do for me because i’m busy now. I aimed at surprising some of our diligent officers with gift cards this week and this should be between us until they all get their cards. Therefore, I need Amazon Gift card of £100 face value each. I need 3 pieces of it amounting to £300. Get the physical card and scratch the back out and attach the scanned pictures showing the pin and email it to me. Can you get it done in 1 hour? “
