The head of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church in Lithonia, Ga. is in trouble again. A lawsuit was filed against the scandalous preacher for allegedly scheming church folk out of millions of dollars, via a business Long endorsed.
According to the Atlantic Journal-Constitution, the allegations stem from a three-day investment seminar Long held at the church in October 2009, at which church members were encouraged to invest in a company named City Capital Corporation, according to the suit. The company’s then-CEO, Ephren Taylor, attended and was heralded by Long, attorney Jason Doss told the AJC. Doss, of Marietta, and attorney Quinton Seay are co-counsels in the suit.
“I am responsible for everyone I bring before you and what they say,” Long said at the seminar, according to the lawsuit. “The gentleman that I am going to bring before you is an ordained minster. That gives me great pride to bring him for you.”
The preacher’s latest allegations are just another thing to add to his long list of scandals and schemes.
