dc.description.abstract I personally noticed since 2017 when WhatsApp launched its status feature that nearly all former colleagues from over many professional years who were terminated for fraud, corruption, or other general malfeasance tended to post dramatically more scripture verses, church events, and religious imagery on their social media then other current and former colleagues from across the educational, NGO, and banking industries of my past and present career. This sort of duplicitous dissonance confounded me. I set off on a quest to uncover whether externally professed religiosity correlates to or, even worse, causes lower integrity and unethical behaviour. Alternatively, do fraudsters merely put-up smoke to come off as pious as a disguise for their evil deeds? Finally, could it just be that we only notice the outward religious displays more of those we know who hold no moral probity because the contrast between religious expression and its positive connotations juxtaposed against the distasteful low ethics of charlatans bothers us? en_US
