Popoff scumbaggery continues – Selling miracle water to wash away debt

We rarely will call a spade a spade in such a personal manner but there is no excuse left for former televangelist Peter Popoff to redeem himself. If there is a hell, Popoff will be Satan’s used car salesman. What a sack of s**t.

Controversial Televangelist Peter Popoff Hawks ‘Miracle Water’.

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.

    I read about this a few years ago.
    I genuinely thought it had been exposed for the scam it is by JREF.

    This is old news but sad nonetheless. John Lennon wrote a song about his mate Paul McCartney back in the day just after they broke up called “How do you sleep?” Call Jon Ronson, this surely is the definition of a psychopath. Sadly, only the FTC can stop this scum bag now.

    Common with these people. They’re exposed, they downsize and concentrate on non visual media for a while, then they try a comeback. God I thought he must be dead by now though.

    If there is a god then Popoff should start sweating.

    Perhaps not a psychopath, but maybe a narcissist who can’t quit the co-dependent people who revere him.

    Also, while I’m glad I don’t have Vision TV anymore, I kind of miss watching his shows, much like Jack Van Impe, becuase they were fascinating things to study.

    Normally, this upsets me, but in this case, not so much. Popoff has been thoroughly exposed for the con artist that he is. I have little empathy for people that are still taken in by his scam. They deserve what they get.
