The St. Ambrose Catholic Church in Brunswick announced in a statement it was swindled out of $1.75M in part to an email scheme.

According to the church, the team was working on a construction project to renovate the sanctuary.

The church partnered with Marous Brothers Construction who started the project two months ago.

Everything was going according to plan until church officials say they received a phone call from the company asking about late payments.

In a written statement, the church announced that they lost the money after a third party hacked their email system.
