Scammer pretending to be a priest from the Milwaukee Catholic Archdiocese.

The Whitefish Bay Police Department has taken a report of a scam where an individual is contacting Milwaukee Catholic Archdiocese parishioners and pretending to be Father Timothy Kitzke.  The suspect will request someone to purchase gift cards and send photographs of the gift cards and pin numbers to a cell phone number.  We have made contact with Father Tim and he is not requesting anyone to purchase gift cards on his behalf.  Please be vigilant when receiving unsolicited calls from individuals who you cannot confirm their identity.
