Facebook Scammers Pretend to be Religious Leaders

Facebook Scammers Pretend to be Religious Leaders

It seems that Facebook fraudsters are increasingly pretending to be US religious leaders to get some easy money. As religious leaders are tapping an ample supply of gullible fans, this illegal business is going well.

For example, one of the scammers has set up a fake page of Reverend Adam Hamilton, who used his genuine Facebook page to keep in touch with his 18,000-member United Methodist Church of the Resurrection. Of course, the fraudster didn’t care about the people, he just wanted to get cash by peddling phony church mission projects.

This is just one of many cases. For instance, Facebook scammers have also targeted some of the best known evangelists, including Joel Osteen, Rick Warren and Craig Groeschel. The results of the fraud were different. Finally, fraudsters went as far as to impersonate Bob Coy, Frank Santora and a megachurch in Connecticut. Even a pastor in South Africa (16 years dead already) emerged on Facebook.

It is unknown how many Facebook members gave away money to scammers (Facebook scammers are meant, not TV evangelists). In the meanwhile, the targeted churches admit that the company is doing good job by quickly taking down phony pages. The problem is that once it does, another one simply pops up.

Reverend Adam Hamilton claimed that he went out of his way to try and warn his followers of potential scam. He admitted that it sounds to him like another Nigerian scam. Worse still, the scheme in question is way too much sophisticated compared with an average Nigerian scam. The matter is that it’s built on real identity theft instead of fairytales about princes and hidden billions.

JAX avatarWith all due respect to Christian beliefs, the BS that is peddled by the "religious leaders" of this world is nothing more than a scam anyway. ALL "true" Christians should not have millions/billions of $, expensive cars, houses ect cuz they are told to sell all their possessions (Luke 23:33, Matt 19:21 ect..). All these "religious leaders" make 100's of millions from people who can barely afford to feed their families. Sad but true.
