Roger Dale Williams was a pastor at King Branch Road Church of Christ who preyed on members of his congregation for fraudulent investments. Under the guise of saying that the donations were for the church, he swindled multiple individuals, mostly elders, out of their hard- earned money. He utilized this money to fund trips, purchase vehicles, and to pay his own personal expenses unrelated to the church. Like a classic Ponzi scheme, Williams used new investors’ money to pay back old investors.
