New York fake bishop who was robbed during live-streamed sermon has been arrested on fraud and extortion charges
Who is giving this fool tithe money?
Lamor Whitehead who calls himself a bishop, who ‘preaches’ in Brooklyn, New York who was robbed at gunpoint during a church service earlier this year, was arrested by federal agents for allegedly scamming a member of his congregation, among other charges.
Lamor who preaches falsehood, including “prosperity gospel,” among other foolishness, drives a Rolls-Royce and wears expensive jewelry and Gucci suits was indicted on two counts of wire fraud, one count of extortion, and one count of making material false statements for lying to the FBI, federal prosecutors said.
If convicted, he faces a maximum of 65 years in prison.
- The feds allege Lamor, 44, swindled one of his parishioners out of $90,000 of her retirement savings by promising to use the cash to buy her a home and instead buying luxury goods and clothing on himself, according to the indictment.
- In another alleged scheme, he extorted a businessman for $5,000 and asked the man to lend him $500,000 promising he could “obtain favorable actions by the New York City government” in exchange for the cash and interest in real estate transactions, the indictment states.
Lamor pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Manhattan federal court and was released on $500,000 bond.
The false teacher, who lives in New Jersey, will also have his travel restricted to the tri-state area as part of his bond package.
