Peter Popoff: A History of Fraud

Peter Popoff was a well-known televangelist in the 1980s. He claimed to have God-given powers that allowed him to heal people of various afflictions, including arthritis, cancer and others.

At his mass-meetings, he seemed to have the amazing ability to known the names, home addresses, illnesses and other personal details of the people who attended. When he was exposed as a fraud on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, as a result of an investigation by James Randi, Popoff soon decalred bankruptcy and faded into obscurity.

Now, Peter Popoff is back again and apparently up to his old tricks. Peter Popoff Miracle Ministry is his new flagship website and has Popoff’s infomercial airing in all fifty US States, in Canada and in Europe.

This blog was created to serve its part in the battle against Popoff and his exploitation of people’s fears, insecurities and gullibility.

I am not the only person fighting Popoff and his scams. I only hope to be able to do my part.

This blog will serve as a guidepost, so that interested persons will know who to contact in a collective effort to have television stations around the US, Canda and Europe remove him from their station/network program schedule. Popoff’s major source of income is from his TV infomercials. By cutting-off that supply of money, perhaps we can send Popoff back to the obscurity he so richly deserves.
