Church claims individuals thought to be part of scam

-A A +A

Two individuals in a photo shared by the Bardstown Police Department Tuesday believed to be part of a money scam have been claimed by a Boston group. The men were claimed as seminarians by Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Boston, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. The church says that its seminarians do evangelization and do not ask for money.
BPD had posted the photo, taken at an area home, on Facebook after being notified by residents of a possible scam.
Several commented on the post saying they had seen men dressed similarly to those pictured around different neighborhoods.
