Peter Popoff, the controversial televangelist who amassed millions from a “prophetic anointing” that was later revealed to have come, at least in part, from information fed to him over a radio by his wife, Elizabeth, is now hawking baggies of “miracle spring water” that promises to rid its drinkers from debt.
The wealth-attracting water is being marketed through Popoff’s website and early morning and late night broadcasts on popular Cable TV channels like Black Entertainment Television (BET) despite a wealth of evidence, including a report by noted skeptic, James Randi, that his miracle ministry reeks of chicanery.
In the electric infomercial about the miracle water, which Popoff provides for “free,” several of its sippers swear by its potency and report hundreds, even thousands of dollars in debt being cancelled by the water’s power.
Don’t know about Popoff? He was a self proclaimed prophet and faith healer. See the wikipedia piece for his long list of dirty deeds. Exposed as a fraud by James Randi in 1986, Popper was found to be using an earpiece and recieving tips from his wife via radio transmission to help him appear to be psychic. After this exposure by Randi on the Johnny Carson show, Popoff went bankrupt. But resurfaced in the late 90s. This Miracle water has been touted apparently since around 2007. He is universally known as a crook yet he still makes a living off the gullible. We should make a new verb: to Popoff – to reach this low level of human depravity.
