Scam artists preying on churches’ compassion


Scam artists are preying on churches’ willingness to help those in need. People are calling larger churches just before Sunday morning services and depicting a situation where an African American church member has broken down in a racist town and need money to pay the car repair bill. At least 6 churches have wired money to these callers.

    Sadly, Church Fraud is a very real concern, with potential risk from the outside as well as within. There are simple steps to increase the security of your churches finances but it is difficult to know where to start. I recently found out about a Christian Accounting firm that offers online tools and support for churches. They have some excellent resources as well as an online questionnaire that will determine whether your church is at risk. Their service is called Weeds in the Garden.
