Temitope Joshua, popularly known as Prophet TB Joshua, the General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), has raised the alarm over the activities of fraudsters who operate with Facebook accounts created with his name.
According to him, fraudsters have created several blogs and Facebook accounts to swindle unsuspecting members of the church and other donors worldwide.
Joshua said he does not have a personal account on the social internet site, adding that the only official account of his church on Facebook is ‘TB Joshua Ministries’.
“Although the fraudulent Facebook pages are too numerous to mention, our attention has been especially drawn to the following account: ‘TB Joshua Ministry Can Change The World’,” he said. “We were shocked to see the account has well over 40,000 followers and the writer of the site is even receiving prayer requests from people in the name of TB. Joshua. What appalling deceit! It is time to put an end to this.
We are saddened to discover that people are still being deceived by individuals on Facebook claiming to be representing Prophet TB. Joshua, the SCOAN or Emmanuel TV. As we have stated several times before, TB Joshua, the SCOAN and Emmanuel TV has only one official Facebook page, which is: TB Joshua Ministries. Any account claiming to represent TB Joshua, the SCOAN of Emmanuel TV is fraudulent. There is no official account on Facebook for TB Joshua, the Wise Men or any individual connected with the ministry.”
He urged members of the public to disregard the fraudsters, stop ‘liking’ them on Facebook and report them to Facebook so that they could be blocked.
“Once again, beware of any imposters claiming to be Prophet TB, Joshua or claiming to represent The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, demanding for money in the name of either of the above in the promise of providing anointing water or other materials from the ministry,” he said.
