OUR PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED-EPHREN TAYLOR RECEIVES ALMOST 20 YEAR PRISON SENTENCE

For his hundreds of victims who lost their life savings, justice does not bring back the tens of millions of dollars that Ephren Taylor took from them in his prolific affinity fraud Ponzi scheme that targeted mainly African-American Christians.  The son of a preacher utilized his religious upbringing and training to con hundreds of the faithful by using their own religion to swindle them. Since July of 2011, I have worked with hundreds of victims, law enforcement, the Secret Service, the FBI, the SEC, the Department of Justice, the IRS and state and local law enforcement to bring Taylor to justice.  The fine men and women in these agencies deserve the deepest gratitude of Taylor's victims for their tireless efforts on behalf of his victims.  It has been my privilege to be a part of this.  It has also been a blessing to get to know and become close friends with many of his victims.  These are wonderful Christian people whose lives were devastated by Taylor's evil deeds.

And now my dear friends, God has answered our prayers.  This chapter of our lives closes but there is still much work to be done.  There are thousands of Ephren Taylor wannabees all over the country who are bilking innocent victims right now.

But as we press on after those who facilitated Ephren's crimes, let us not forget our mantra:

"DO NOT BE OVERCOME BY EVIL, BUT OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD." ROMANS 12:21.   AND THE PEOPLE SAID, "AMEN!"

God Bless You All!  Cathy

EXCELLENT VICE ARTICLE ON EPHREN TAYLOR-THE BLACK BERNIE MADOFF

VICE HAS DONE A GREAT JOB OF ANALYZING TAYLOR'S RELIGIOUS AFFINITY FRAUD.  I HOPE CHURCH LEADERS WILL TAKE TO HEART THE LESSONS LEARNED FROM TAYLOR-DON'T EVER THINK THAT THE DEVIL IS ONLY OUTSIDE THE CHURCH.  HE MAY BE STANDING IN THE PULPIT PREACHING A SERMON AND HIS NAME MAY BE EPHREN TAYLOR.  HERE IS THE  VICE ARTICLE:

OUR PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED-EPHREN TAYLOR UNDER CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION

John Horn of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Atlanta has announced that prosecutors are "actively pursuing" a criminal investigation against Ephren Taylor.  We can only hope that Meshelle is also included in that investigation since she participated in Ephren's schemes.  TO ALL OF MY CLIENTS WHO ARE VICTIMS OF EPHREN TAYLOR:

I know you have suffered tremendously over the last several years at the hands of this con artist.  Many of you have suffered health crises, divorces, foreclosures and a myriad of other problems as a result of the theft of your life savings. Many of you are senior citizens and this devastating loss has ruined your golden years

A lot of you have questioned your faith, your church and your God because of Ephren's evil that targeted  people of faith.  I hope and pray that you have not and will not let this destroy your faith.  There are many, many people out there who have been and still are trying to help you.  There are many more that will come forward now.  When we started this journey, we looked to the word of God for strength and comfort.  It is so appropriate that on a Sunday morning, the Lord's Day, we would receive this news.

So as we now start this journey towards Ephren's indictment, prosecution and trial, I remind you of our mantra:

DO NOT BE OVERCOME WITH EVIL BUT OVERCOME  EVIL WITH GOOD!  ROMANS 12:21

I will be posting updates as this progresses so check my Blog for information. Please pray for the investigators and prosecutors who are leading this investigation.  We owe them a debt of gratitude for taking this on.  But know this, our prayers have been answered.  Ephren will finally be criminally investigated for what he has done to all of you.  I am confident he will be indicted and convicted.  The evidence of his evil deeds is overwhelming. 

KEEP THE FAITH!  LOVE TO ALL, CATHY

A PERSONAL MESSAGE TO EPHREN AND MESHELLE (LIZ) TAYLOR

  Ephren and Meshelle (LIZ) Taylor, 

I guess the old saying "You can run but you can't hide" is really true!  Because you sure as hell were hiding.  But the ANGELS OF LENEXA (May God bless them richly for having the faith and courage to come forward and help these Victims!) made your victims very, very happy because there you both were on national television starring in ABC'S "THE LOOKOUT" looking and acting just like the unscrupulous con artists that you really are.  Finally, on national television the real Ephren and  Meshelle Taylor were humiliated, embarrassed and exposed for all the world to see. No more "Christian" charades and  no more "Man of God" illusions.

 I guess you finally figured out that no one was going to believe your excuses for the hundreds of scams you have pulled for almost a decade and  that your victims,after waiting years for you to "make things right"  as you claimed you would do,  realized that your promise  was just another one of your lies to stall your victims.  So you and " Liz"  went and hid in Kansas and just hoped it would all go away.   UNTIL GOD SENT THE ANGELS OF LENEXA TO EXPOSE YOU!

WELL, HEADS UP EPHREN OLD BUDDY!   YOUR HUNDREDS OF  VICTIMS WANT TO SEE YOU AND "LIZ" (your talent-challenged wife WHO WASTED A WHOLE LOT OF VICTIMS' MONEY ON A MUSIC VIDEO THAT IS PAINFUL TO BOTH WATCH AND HEAR)  IN JAIL!  YOUR VICTIMS WANT JUSTICE!

SO...STAY TUNED- EPHREN AND "LIZ"- BECAUSE I WON'T REST AND NEITHER WILL YOUR VICTIMS UNTIL YOU ARE FINALLY BROUGHT TO JUSTICE FOR YOUR CRIMES.  AND I WANT TO KNOW AND SO DO YOUR VICTIMS WHY YOU HAVEN'T BEEN CHARGED ALREADY.  THERE ARE PLENTY OF PONZI SCHEMERS THAT WERE CAUGHT AFTER YOU AND THEY ARE ALREADY IN PRISON WHERE YOU SHOULD BE. 

So Thank God for the ANGELS OF LENEXA!  VICTIMS- IT IS TIME TO RALLY AND DRAW NATIONAL ATTENTION TO THIS TRAVESTY OF JUSTICE.    I WILL BE IN TOUCH FOR NEXT STEPS..... Love to All, Cathy
