Item of Interest
Information has recently been received about persons who have attempted to work through Christian Scientists for the purpose of obtaining money fradulently. One such person asked to be directed to a member of the executive board of a branch church, to whom he appealed for assistance to reach a distant state, claiming membership, and relationship to one serving as Reader in a branch church there. Investigation revealed no such member in that church. Another inquirer requested the names of people who rented rooms, and induced a householder whose rooms he saw to advance a sum of money to pay the expense of informing transient lodgers of the availability of these rooms. Various excuses for asking for money are employed by unscrupulous persons. Some pretend to represent legitimate business enterprises, some refer to Christian Scientists at a distance, while others present seemingly plausible offers to give service for which they ask payment in advance.
As Christian Scientists remember that omnipotent Truth uncovers and corrects error, then when they are approached by strangers asking for monetary assistance, contributions, or advance payments, they will make needed investigation before responding to such appeals.
