Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Atlanta fraudster set up ‘Black Lives Matter’ group, pocketed $200,000 in donations - FBI”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Sir Maejor Page was arrested on Friday and charged with fraud and money laundering, with the FBI accusing him of misappropriating $200,000 in donations to his organization: ‘Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta.’

The organization was founded by Page - a well-known local activist - in 2016, but took in more than $466,000 in donations this June, July, and August, after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, set off a nationwide protest movement. 

Page claimed that donations to his organization would be used "for George Floyd," but he allegedly spent nearly half of them on food, entertainment, furniture, tailored suits, according to an FBI affidavit in support of a criminal complaint against him.

In addition, Page is accused of using the cash to buy himself a new home in Toledo, Ohio, last month.

The home at which law enforcement is raiding in regards to Sir Maejor Page was purchased by the activist organization Hi-Frequency Ohio. That purchase happened last month. Page is one of the leaders of that group https://t.co/YZCbkX8v1w#13abcpic.twitter.com/ZsidUFko9d
