Real estate agents can be bottom-feeding parasites. We dealt with a particularly obnoxious, conniving, two-faced witch many years ago and it is the only time in my life that I desperately wanted to punch a woman in the face.

Phrases like "trust me" whether they have a religious connotation put me on edge since I always try to start from a place of trust and giving benefit of the doubt.
"I swear" when after something that sounds incredible is fine....use it when you are talking about something mundane, and again, I'm on edge. Eg "I swear, I had some couple looking at this house this morning". You're a realtor, why would it surprise me if someone was looking at the house in the morning?!

Speaking of scam artists, in an area that was becoming or had become upscale apartments, with difficult to find units, a realtor was offering apartments, which he'd take a cash deposit % from each interested party. Did that several times and skipped town with a lot of deposits.

All of our presidents have been church-going Christians, including our current one.  Actually, Reagan never went to church until after he was president, but he did claim to be a Christian.

 "The more someone talks about God during a business deal, the tighter you need to hold on to your wallet"

I'm deeply in the Christian church world and sadly this is true.  In fact, you'll often hear similar advice in the church and from the pulpit.  We are aware that scammers will use the trust of their "brethren" to rip them off.

When people are flamboyant about their religion (specially in a business context) it is usually a slight of hand attempt to draw your attention away from their more serious personality flaws and or crimes.

Lincoln, Jefferson, both Adams', Hamilton, both Roosevelts. There are probably a few more. But the whole "christian" badge thing really hasn't worked out so well, has it. The most bloodthirsty Presidents this Nation has had have always been the most vocal about their "christian" faith.

And there's the predictable cliched response.  Thank you.  I also keep using my computer even though I know there are computer viruses, I keep giving tests even though some students cheat, and I keep buying grapes even though some are sour.

Yes, church people are aware that some use religious language to rip people off.  We try to weed out the crooks and warn people, but it still happens.  If I avoided every group that included phonies with bad agendas, I'd be a bitter loner who stayed home and posted their hate on Fark.

Do you keep listening to the pope when he says you should give your money to the poor while he sits on top of one of the largest piles of wealth in the world?*

Yes, I did attend the Dalai Lama's speech when my university paid him $500,000 to fly in on his huge private jet and speak to us about true happiness.

And I watch the world cup while the nonprofit FIFA sits on a $1 billion reserve.  And I watch real football while the nonprofit NFL pays Roger Goodell $30 million per year.

Well sure. But most groups don't require you to believe in their imaginary friend to be part of them, and it's the very belief in the unproven and unsupportable and abdication of judgement to unknown authority that makes the religious such wonderful targets for such wolves in sheep's clothing.

Ummm ... he wasn't asking for examples of rip-off artists. They are a dime a dozen.

He was asking you to prove your claims that you identify the rip-off artists and warn everyone off. All your examples are of very wealthy people/organizations. Seems like your warnings are completely ineffective.
