The FBI needs your help tracking down a scam artist that's targeted churches in 41 states.

Abraham Kennard is wanted for money laundering and mail fraud. Agents say he defrauded more than 1,600 churches out of $9-million. Investigators say Kennard poses as a pastor and promised congregations loans of $500,000 for every $3,000 they invested.

Oklahoma hasn't been targeted yet, but he may be in the area. If you've seen Kennard call the Oklahoma City FBI at 405-290-7770.
