I am a former employee of Kelly Media Group. While I was there I worked on the Peter Popoff Account. Peter Popoff is a TV evangelist, who claims to be a prophet. (Prophet? Oh really Peter?) Anyways, while working for Kelly Media, which is an advertising agency owned and operated by Peter Popoffs son-in-law Jason Cardiff, it was my job to enter prayer requests and donations into a database. These entries into the database would generate a letter to be sent back to the person who wrote in. It would print up a detailed letter, which appears to be handwritten by Peter Popoff himself telling people that he was praying for them, and their particular problems.
He writes "The other day I was praying for you, and decided to go to a coffee shop where I knew I could focus, and everytime I said your name I was embraced by the holy spirit." Statements like that imply that he himself prays for these people, when in fact, it was made clear to me that he does not see their prayer requests, he does not even see their letters. I group of ladies read these letters, briskly scanning through them.
They take the money out that Peter Popoff has asked the people for, writes the prayer requests on the envelope,and sends them to us who would type them into the database. The coffee shop line quoted above will be mass produced, word for word on each letter for about sixty thousand people at a time. All the while people think that they are sending him money to advance the work of god, and that in return he is praying for them. Peter Popoff is not only not praying for these people, he doesnt even know who they are.
There are so many people being defrauding that they have this giant database. When you go to a car dealership, it is fraud if the mechanic tells you he fixed the car and charges you for it when he didnt even see the car. Same concept. This money that is supposed to be going to the "work of god" is actually buying Peter Popoff and his Son in Law Jason Cardiff fancy cars, designer clothes, and I imagine pretty large houses. All the while there are people who have faith in a person that is screwing them over and not helping them with their prayers and deepest concerns. They are both a real sweet peice of work.
Peter Popoff in the past has been indicted by the FBI for fraud, yet he is still at it. It is also rumored that Peter Popoffs funds are funding the start up of the Kelly Media Advertising Agency, in which they are being misused. Ontop of the fruad, they are hiring illegals to stuff envelopes. When I was hired I was not asked to provide a social security card at all. Fortunatly for them I am legal, but I know of more than one of my co-workers that are not.
