Scam Artists Take Advantage of Churches This Holiday Season
Churches are always lending a hand during the Christmas season, but because of their willingness to give, CBS 8 News has learned many are being taken advantage of.
"You have a very small percentage of the populous that will try to take advantage of that giving nature," says John Coleman, the rector of the Church of the Ascension in Montgomery.
Coleman says he has contacted the Attorney General's Office and the District Attorney's office about the Yellow Pages Scheme, and he says they are spreading the word to other churches.
