We all got an email from this person disguising themselves as our Pastor Dale and its his wrong email for 1, and they are asking for money, but for my email they just wrote to me on the header it says "I need your favor urgently please" and the message it only says "are you there", then 1 of the other Pastors reached out to all of us and let us know this is a fraudulent acct and don't give them any money or info and report this acct immediately!!! Pastor Dale would never ask for money in a email and its the wrong email of Pastor Dale as well

This guy contacted me last July on Twitter. He said he was Patrick J Adams. He said he had a shitty marriage and was unhappy. His wife would not let him tough their money and she was a b****. He wanted to start a project and needed help. I believed him and his lies. I lost 80k from this guy. He has not paid me a dime. I hope someone get him and throw him in prison. I hate you, whoever you are!!!!
