B.L.M. ACTIVIST BOUGHT HOUSE AND PAID HOOKER WITH DONOR FUNDS, COPS SAY

A self-proclaimed Black Lives Matter movement leader in Atlanta reportedly defrauded donors out of hundreds of thousands of dollars and then used a “substantial portion” of the funds received on personal expenses, such as buying a house and paying a prostitute.

Sir Maejor Page, 32, was indicted by a federal grand jury in Cleveland last week on a total of three counts of laundering money and one count of wire fraud, according to the Department of Justice. Page is also accused of creating a 501(c)(3) Facebook page called “Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta” and proceeded to use the page in 2020—after the IRS revoked its tax-exempt charity status—to raise a staggering $450,000 from donors.

As presumed by the Department of Justice, Page suggested that he would be using the donations to fight for racial and social justice even though the organization was not longer an official charity. Instead, Page reportedly used a “substantial portion” of the donations for his personal benefit, spending money on “entertainment, hotel rooms, clothing and firearms,” as well as purchasing a home in Toledo, Ohio, and also paying a prostitute, according to the Department of Justice.

“These allegations involve fraudulent misrepresentations that the donations received would support Black Lives Matter (Atlanta, Georgia) when, as stated in the indictment, those funds were actually used by the defendant for personal expenses he incurred in Toledo and elsewhere,” Acting U.S. Attorney Bridget M. Brennan said during a D.O.J. press release.

“It is our sincere hope that these charges help raise awareness about online scams and efforts by some to exploit the name and purpose of non-profit organizations for personal gain.”

Page initially registered the organization’s name with the Georgia Secretary of State Corporations Division in 2016, taking on the role of president and C.E.O. Facebook then proceeded to recognize BLMGA as a valid charity, allowing users to make donations.

But in May of 2019, the IRS revoked BLMGA’s tax-exempt status after it was discovered that Page had not filled out the necessary paperwork for three consecutive years. Page apparently did not notify Facebook of the situation and continued to accept donations.

The D.O.J. continued to report:

To create the false pretense and representation that BLMGA was a legitimate social justice organization, the defendant routinely made posts on BLMGA’s public Facebook page about social and racial issues, including those occurring in Georgia. In addition to falsely representing BLMGA as a legitimate non-profit organization, the defendant is accused of using the BLMGA Facebook handle to privately communicate with other Facebook users and falsely represented that the donations would be used to “fight for George Floyd” and the “movement.”  As a result, over one hundred people donated to BLMGA through its Facebook page.

It is alleged that the defendant used a substantial portion of the funds donated to BLMGA to buy personal items, including entertainment, hotel rooms, clothing and firearms.  The defendant is accused of using the largest sum of funds to purchase a property and the adjoining vacant lot on Glenwood Avenue and Maplewood Avenue in Toledo, Ohio. This property was to be used as a personal residence for the defendant, the indictment states. The defendant allegedly attempted to conceal the purchase of the property by titling it to “Hi Frequency Ohio” and requesting that the seller’s realtor enter into a nondisclosure agreement. This prevented the seller from disclosing that the defendant was the true buyer and that he used BLMGA funds to make the purchase.

“Page is accused of using unprecedented tensions and uncertainty due to widespread civil unrest and a global pandemic to fill his own bank account,” FBI Special Agent in Charge Eric B. Smith said.

“Page allegedly purchased homes, traveled, and spent other people’s money to buy luxury items for himself, all on the backs of hardworking people believing they were donating to a worthy cause. The FBI will continue efforts to root out fraudsters who victimize our fellow citizens for personal gain.”
