NEW YORK (WCBS 880) -- Scammers are using the Catholic Church to steal money from parishioners.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan is warning his social media followers that a rogue internet account is using his likeness and is asking people for donations on Facebook and Twitter.

The Archbishop of New York says he'd never reach out privately on social media to ask for donations.

Cardinal Dolan is asking anyone that's received the messages to report back to the Archdiocese of NewYork.
