As a native Provoan, I'm not at all surprised at this and very proud. It's not perfect, but it's a wonderful place with wonderful values.

Bountiful, UT

I have also read in the news that Utah county is the place in the nation where one is most likely to be cheated in a bogus investment scam.

Most religious does not mean most upright or most moral.

Salt Lake City, UT

So does being 'religious' equate to being 'good' or 'moral'?

'He (Wegner) also quoted scriptures like Leviticus 20:13: "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to DEATH...' – article

I disagree.

@cjb, actually the root meaning of the word religious means to conduct ones life in an upright moral manor. The community as a whole is very religious, especially when compared to the standards of most communities. There will always be a few bad apples in every community who will take advantage of others if given the opportunity.

Mississippi, Alabama, and Utah. What great company!

American Fork, UT

I'm always curious why this sort of information is sought.

It’s simple. To have affinity fraud, you have to have an affinity. More affinity equals more availability to fraudsters. Doesn't make the vast majority bad.


I haven’t been to either Mississippi or to Alabama but I know and work with folks from both. They are great folks (though those Alabamans can be a bit hard to take during football season . . . .)
