When will the good "church going people" become less naive and realize that there are many scam crooks floating around looking for a soft touch? The scam crooks have come to believe that they deserve everything they steal. Wake-up folks! You can't change these people with kindness. They will spit in your face.

Big surprise. The church steals from church goers and a couple people steal back. Oh well, they cancel each other out.

I can't wrap my brain around the fact that the nuns gave one single couple $800K. Wouldn't the red flag go up after the first $100K or so?

These people need to be thrown in jail, deported, whatever but that is just plain stupid.

To quote the lying perpetrators in this article in order to characterize the nuns is unconscionable.

Why don't you go to the nuns themselves, and ask them if they were trying to actually throw as much money as possible out into the street?

...Oh, no, that would be too hard to actually ask if the perps were accurate in their characterizations...


We taxpayers have been ripped off and scammed for a million times this amount in the past few months...

It's their culture. Steal. To them, stealing and killing is as natural as breathing. It's the African way. If in doubt, just look at the continent. Always their hands out. Poverty, wars, etc. never ending.

Hopefully justice will prevail! This is why so many are leary of helping the homeless or needy. I hope they both spend the rest of their lifes in prision. I pray that we all will continue to help others less fortunate, in spite of these theives.

Instead of wasting money on putting them in prison, they should have to work for the churches they ripped off. Make them do hard labor all day long - make them cook for soup kitchens and scrub the churches clean all night.

We must be fair.

Let them pay it back after spending 15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections.

This seems like an extension of the Nigerian bank scam. These Africans are smarter than most Americans and they prey on our goodwill. Just look at the Somali: They give the finger to us and then threaten to do great harm to any more US sailors they capture. I am for bringing back B52 carpet bombing to the Dark Continent.
Sorry--so it goes!
