The San Francisco Examiner investigates a pastor who bilked elderly members of his congregation out of more than a million dollars in loans with the intention of building a new church. The investigation revealed that the pastor had no intention of repaying his congregants. In fact, several of his private property purchases followed loans by mere months. The minister now awaits trial on fraud charges.
