Houston Church Leaders Charged with Student Loan Fraud

Eric and Sheila Washington, pastors of Texas church Fishers of Men Worhsip Center, along with the church’s secretary and treasurer,  have been charged by federal prosecutors with student loan fraud.  From KHOU.com:

Prosecutors claim the accused would recruit church members who were students, file for student loans in their names and pocket the cash.

They are also accused of committing fraud against FEMA by overstating the number of Katrina victims their church was assisting.
