Black Church News: Pastor arrested for allegedly running $8.6M fraud ring




This Canada pastor and his wife have been arrested for allegedly scamming church members and their family.  Pastors Marlon and First Lady Verna Hibbert founded several churches under their organization, The Life Centre Word of Faith Ministries Inc.  Saints of God, how many times have we mentioned here at SCR blog that some of these mega ministries are not anointed, they are just corporations out to get people's money?

According to Mississuaga.com, Pastor Marlon Gary Hibbert, 49, and his wife Verna Michelle Hibbert, 48, were arrested Thursday. Police allege the Hibberts scammed more than 200 investors out of millions over a period of six years.  Hibbert made these investors believe he was “successful trader in foreign currencies.” Since then, the Hibbert's church license has been revoked, according to wsj.com.

These situations will continue to happen, if people continue to willingly give their money.  God gives us sense to know when people are up to know good, it's just sad many people are gullible.

In the meantime, we pray for them both and sure hope they repent for theft.
