Somehow, I think that stupidity will be a complete defense to this claim of fraud:
One of two civil claims brought against religious group Agape Ministries may be settled out of court, a lawyer has told the Adelaide District Court.
One of the plaintiffs cannot be named because of a temporary suppression order.
That plaintiff and another former church member, Martin Penney, are suing pastor Rocco Leo and two of his associates, Joe Venziano and Mari-Antionette Veneziano.
They want their money back, claiming they handed over more than $400,000 and $1 million respectively to the church based on lies about a doomsday scenario.
How does that saying go ?
A fool and his money are soon parted.
