Living Church of God just cannot seem to keep trouble away from its doorstep. Apparently LCG members are receiving emails and contacts on Facebook for donations and some gullible church members are sending these people money. A lot of it is coming from Africa and other poor countries. They see dumb white Americans as a money source, much like what is happening to Almost Arrested Elisha Amos Elijah Joshua Thiel. He is a money stream for people who will jump on to other groups when the money stops.
LCG needs to prevent this as it cuts into their money stream.
Requests for Money via E-mail and Social Media—Must Read From time to time, brethren are contacted via e-mail or social media (including Facebook) by individuals claiming to be part of the Church, often overseas, asking for financial help. If you receive such a request, please exercise extreme caution, as most such messages are scams sent by people trying to get money under false pretenses. You would be wise not to send money based on e-mail or social media contact. And remember, the person contacting you may be impersonating someone you know. Please respond by referring any such contact to that person’s local Living Church of God pastor (or Headquarters if you don’t know who their pastor is). If there is a genuine need, their pastor will be in a better position to address it.
