Are warning labels needed for houses of worship?

January 14, 2017 • By Dennis Beaver

“Mr. Beaver, I remember one of your articles that ran several years ago where you had the most extraordinary conversation with a con artist. He would join a church and swindle congregation members in a Ponzi scheme, using religion and trust.

“My elderly mother is on the verge of  ‘investing’ her life savings with a member of our congregation who is promising impossibly huge, monthly returns. I have the creepiest feelings about this guy. Mom loves your column, and I’m sure that if you can find the story and your editors agree to run it again, she and others will read it and hopefully not proceed further.”

We found that story.
