I've seen that ad. I couldn't believe that all the people claiming benefits were all African-American. It seemed almost racist to me.

I had to google the name, but with that prompting there came a vague memory of the earlier scandal about him.

Worse than him is this bloke, he provides a platform for every charlatan and whack job w/in "Christendom." It amazes me at how gullible the masses really are! :shock:

The testimonials in the ad were mostly financial gains and windfalls.

If I were a confidence trickster, and my name was Popoff, I'd change it; I mean, even before I was caught ought under that name. There is that something about it which is surely not naturally conducive to inspiring confidence in English speakers.

In the early 90's Peter Popoff was taking in almost 1 million dollars a month. He was featured on 20/20 or 60 minutes years ago. People who went to see his 'show' were asked questions by his 'crew' as they entered so they knew details about that particular person. Popoff had an ear bug and he was walking among the crowd his cohorts would tell him something like, "Older lady on right third row 5th seat in has pancreatic cancer." He would go to that lady and say, "you have pancreatic cancer don't you!" To a Pentecostal, that's called "the word of knowledge." The person would be astounded that Popoff would know something about them he wasn't aware of. Then he would put his hand on their head go through his Pentecostal tangent and pray a healing prayer....the rest is history until he got 'popped' for the scandal.

He's back! I saw him and his wife on TV just a few months ago begging and offering his Miracle Spring Water to donors.
