Fake Prophet Ordered To Pay Back $7.75M To 165,000 People He Duped For Prayers

A Seattle man, Benjamin Rogovy, running a so-called Christian prayer website and other businesses has been ordered to return millions of dollars to consumers of all over the US  who paid for prayers, the Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson said on Wednesday. As part of an agreement, he will pay back as much as $7.75 million to approximately 165,000 customers who were victims of his fraudulent business practices in several companies he ran. Rogovy deceived a lot of people in his operation of the Christian Prayer Center.

He created fake religious leaders and posted several false testimonials on its website to entice people to pay from $9 to $35 for prayers.The Christian Prayer Center website, now shut down, showed a message on Wednesday saying it is now closed, with links to other prayer sites it says it’s not affiliated with.

“We thank you for all the prayers, and we cherish the opportunity to have created a place where Christians could meet to support each other,” the message said.

People who bought prayer services from Christian Prayer Service or from its sister website Orcion Cristiana between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2015, have been told that they can receive a full refund.
