Fraudulent email to South Carolina clergy

Author:

The Diocese of South Carolina reports that an email fraudulently bearing the name and seal of the diocese was sent to its clergy inviting them to attend a clergy conference.  However, the diocese did not issue the invitation for the clergy to meet on 15 November 2012 and hear retired East Tennessee Bishop Charles von Rosenberg speak.
Sources in the diocese also report that members of the clergy are being pressured not to attend the diocese's 17 November 2012 special convention, with the aim of preventing a quorum from being formed.
Bishop von Rosenberg has not responded to queries as of our going to press on his role in the scheme.
