    The affinity church scam

    In this scam there is often promises of a triple digit return. Has anyone on here been scammed by a church like this or have a story to share where they were approached to join?

    It's either ignorance on your part or a deliberate attempt to taint the church. THEY are not the ones promoting this scam but OUTSIDERS who work hard to first gain the trust of an organization.

    They target many groups besides the church.

    From the SEC WEBSITE:

    Affinity fraud refers to investment scams that prey upon members of identifiable groups, such as religious or ethnic communities, the elderly, or professional groups. The fraudsters who promote affinity scams frequently are - or pretend to be - members of the group. They often enlist respected community or religious leaders from within the group to spread the word about the scheme by convincing those people that a fraudulent investment is legitimate and worthwhile. Many times, those leaders become unwitting victims of the fraudster's ruse.
