‘Bling Bishop’ Who was Robbed During Church Livestream Found GUILTY of Fraud, Extortion

The prosperity preacher who was robbed at gunpoint during a live-streamed service and relieved of reported $400,000 in watches, rings, and chains had been found guilty of “two counts of wire fraud, one count of attempted wire fraud, one count of attempted extortion, and one count of making false statements to federal law enforcement agents,” according to a press release by the Southern District of New York’s Attorney’s Office. 

Bishop Lamor Miller-Whitehead founded Brooklyn-based Leaders of Tomorrow International Ministries, a false church if ever there was one. His ministry was registered as a for-profit business in 2014, and the church denies the Trinity. His website’s statement of faith reads, “There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.” I.e., the dude is a rank heretic, and everything about his pastorate and church is decrepit and false.

We last wrote about him after Blinged-Up Prosperity Preacher Robbed of $1M+ in Jewelry During Church Live Stream, after he showed off his “Prayer Closet’ Full of Designer Clothes, Shoes, Diamonds and when he grabbed a  Female Congregant and Shoved Her Off Pulpit After Interrupting Him.

His guilty conviction does not stem from his being robbed at gunpoint but rather a series of frauds he perpetrated to further this lavish lifestyle and stock his “prayer closet.” The release notes:

First, WHITEHEAD induced one of his parishioners to invest approximately $90,000 of her retirement savings with him by promising to use the money to help her buy a home.  He then spent the money on luxury goods and other personal expenses and, when she demanded to be paid back, he continued to lie to avoid returning the money.  

Second, WHITEHEAD extorted a businessman for $5,000, then attempted to convince the same businessman to lend him $500,000 and give him a stake in certain real estate transactions in return for favorable actions from the Mayor of New York City, even though WHITEHEAD knew he could not obtain the favors he promised. 

Third, WHITEHEAD submitted a fraudulent application for a $250,000 business loan, including doctored bank statements that falsely claimed WHITEHEAD had millions of dollars in the bank and hundreds of thousands of dollars in monthly revenue.  

Finally, when speaking with Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) agents who were executing a search warrant outside WHITEHEAD’s mansion in New Jersey, WHITEHEAD falsely claimed that he had no cellphones other than the phone he was carrying when, in fact, WHITEHEAD had and regularly used a second cellphone, which was inside his house at the time.

The first three counts carry a maximum of twenty years in prison, and the latter a maximum of five.
