Lamor Whitehead, the bishop at Leaders of Tomorrow International Churches in Canarsie, is accused of convincing 56-year-old Pauline Anderson to invest, $90,000, nearly her entire life savings in one of his firms — with the promise that he could help her buy a home despite her bad credit history, the court papers say.  

“Mr. Whitehead fraudulently induced Ms. Anderson to liquidate her entire life savings to pay him the ‘investment’ of $90,000.00, promising to use the funds to purchase and renovate a house for her,” alleges the lawsuit. “Ms. Anderson was instead left with nothing but a vague promise by Mr. Whitehead to pay the funds back in the future followed by an assertion that he had no further obligation to do so.”

Anderson wrote Whitehead a check in November 2020, under the condition that he would give her $100 a month to get by until her new home was ready, legal papers say.

The City

To add insult to injury, the suit claims Whitehead bought a 4.4 million dollar palatial home in a ritzy New Jersey suburb, while telling Anderson, 56, that he couldn’t repay her $100,000 life savings.

Anderson had been attending Whitehead’s services for about 3 months before she had “life threatening” surgery.”

Her son, Rasheed, introduced her to Whitehead, who prayed with her over the phone as she recovered, legal papers state.

❋ In 2013 Christian Pastor Whitehead was released from Sing Sing after serving 5 years for identity fraud and grand larceny.
