Well, religion is pure fraud so I can not say I am surprised - especially since most Americans believe in fairy tales.

Over the years on this forum, I have continually watched a series of frauds which tapped into the trust that people have in various groups (often religious). Bloomberg Magazine has now done a story about the latest.

Any brewing frauds that people are aware of?
