Minister or Fleecer

As reported in the Telegraph on the 8 September 2006 Tony Craggs, church minister and thief of Charlesworth Congregational Church, Derbyshire was sentenced to 240 hours of community service after fleecing some his flock. Not since the days of Robin Hood has Nottingham Court seen such a bounder. Vulnerable and trusting people he was supposed to care for and pastor became his victims. It seems he was more interested in lining his own pockets. When the police searched his computer they came upon a file reading "A good conman takes a bit of the truth and lot of the lies and binds them together to pull the wool over the eyes of the ignorant."

Are there more 'pastors' out there doing the same thing albeit perhaps with a bit more subtlety?
(Like refusing to provide audited financial statements)

When will people be more discerning?

Maybe the metaphor of a pastor being a shepherd for his flock is because they are as dumb as sheep?

Rev Craggs is now Tony Oswin and sometimes Tony Alexander, posing as a solicitor; beware this nasty fraudster.

I have had dealings with Tony Oswin or better known as Rev. Tony Craggs. He now runs several websites posing as a solicitor. Low cost Legal.info, Low Cost Solicitors.info and Business Legal Network.com. He still is a fraudster claiming to be a war hero.
Nasty.
