Securities regulators see sharp rise in religious-based scams


Gerald Payne

At the intersection of old-time religion and old-line Ponzi schemes some 90,000 people in three years have been bilked of nearly $2 billion by con artists promising unearthly rewards from divinely blessed investments, state securities regulators said Tuesday, adding that the scams are ‚Äúrising dramatically‚ÄĚ across the U.S.

If you are born again and studying the WORD everyday, the scammers won't touch you. JESUS is LIGHT and in HIM is no darkness at all. If you will try the spirits you won't fall for the gimmicks of the fleshly preachers. STUDY to show thyself approved unto God,a workman that needeth not be ashamed, RIGHTLY dividing the WORD of TRUTH. Meditate on the WORD daily and be led by THE HOLY GHOST and you won't be trapped. Greedy people feed the greedy scammers!!!!
