Fake Pastors Swindle Churchgoers In $28 Million FX/Crypto Ponzi Scheme
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed charges against two Maryland companies and their principals allegedly defrauding more than 1,000 investors in a $28 million Ponzi scheme.
The SEC first filed the complaint against 1st Million LLC and Smart Partners LLC, and their principals, Dennis Jali, John Frimpong, and Arley Johnson, in August, for defrauding 1,200 investors, many of which were "African immigrants."
The complaint said the trio "exploited common ancestry and/or religious affiliations to earn investors' trust. Many of the investors were health care workers and/or members of churches attended by Jali, Frimpong, and/or Johnson."...
Today at my Baptist Church during Adult Sunday School the subject matter was The Protestant Reformation(Jacob Arminius and the Dutch Reformation). Today the service was called Family Service. There were 3 songs at the beginning. Then there was prayer time. Then Associate Pastor Neil gave the announcements. The sermon was given by Associate Pastor Neil and was titled "The Shema" from Deuteronomy 6:4-24. The things to learn from The Shema1)Believe God Truly,(2)Love God Transformatively,(3)Love God Unconditionally,(4)Tell God's Story. After the sermon everyone filled out a prayer card and brought it to one of the 4 prayer stations in the sanctuary. I brought my prayer card to Senior Pastor Steve and he prayed for the arthritis in my knees. Then after everyone was prayed over the last song occurred.
For we are not like many, peddling the word of God, but as from sincerity, but as from God, we speak in Christ in the sight of God. --

Scam artists like the Crouches freely siphon money out of individuals daily and have never been held accountable for the fraud their business is built upon. We may not have the right to shut them down if they‚Äôre conning people through religious fanaticism, but we can at least ensure their profits are being taxed justly for the corporations that they are.

Apparently, some don't realize there's legal ways of fleecing the flock.
This may be tough to swallow but those parishioners deserve to be swindled by the devil because they refused to believe the truth of the Gospel.
Ephesians 6:9 But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.
