Catholic Priest Allegedly Fakes Cancer Diagnosis to Raise Cash for HIV Positive Dating Website

Published

on

A Catholic priest in Mississippi bilked his parishioners out of thousands of dollars by claiming that he had a rare form of cancer, only to spend money donated to him on a membership for an HIV positive dating website according to a Thursday report.

“An affidavit filed in U.S. District Court, Jackson, Mississippi by Homeland Security Special Agent William G. Childers alleges that Father Lenin Vargas Gutierrez used money given to him by parishioners for what he said were cancer treatments in Canada and charitable causes in his native Mexico for his own personal expenses,” the report said. “One of these expenses was membership in a dating website for people with HIV.”

Varags was a priest at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Starkville before he was abruptly removed from his post after the charges were filed by by law enforcement this week. He allegedly told his clergy that he had a rare form of cancer.

“A GoFundMe account soliciting funds for this treatment was set up and raised $9,210. According to Special Agent Childers, Vargas withdrew most of the donations between March 24 and April 12, 2015. By the end of April, the priest had been given over $20,000 from different sources, including Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Macon, Michigan,” the report said.

According to a local news report, the priest would “groom” his victims by taking them out to meals, for which he would pay (and subsequently put on the church’s tab) before asking them for donations.

“After ingratiating himself, agents say he would then give the parishioner the opportunity to donate to his cause,” that report said. “One informant claimed they gave a $5,000 check to St. Joseph Parish and Vargas called them to ask if the money could be used for the orphanage, to which the informant agreed.”

In a statement, the Diocese of Jackson said:

Earlier this week the government began an investigation of the financial administration of Saint Joseph in Starkville. Saint Joseph Parish and the Diocese of Jackson are cooperating with the investigation. Pending the resolution of the investigation, Father Lenin Vargas will not engage in any public ministry, and has been removed from all pastoral and financial administration.

The continued spiritual and financial well being of St. Joseph Parish and Corpus Christi Mission is of the utmost importance, and we will continue to aid you both in sound fiscal management of all of your resources. Let us pray with trust that the Lord Jesus will shepherd us through this difficult time of upheaval and uncertainty.

SOLITARY: Michael Avenatti Transferred To El Chapo’s Former Cell In New York Jail

Federal prosecutors aren’t inclined to give Avenatti a break.

Published

on

New legal documents published Monday night reveal that showboat attorney and former cable news star Michael Avenatti has been transferred from a California jail to an infamous New York jail after violating the terms of his pre-trial agreement.

Avenatti was arrested at a hearing of the California Bar Association last weekend.

New documents published by his attorney surfaced Monday, revealing that Avenatti was transferred from California to New York over the weekend and jailed at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Avenatti is currently facing criminal charges related to an alleged extortion of Nike, in which the showboat attorney is said to have threatened the sporting company with legal and press campaign against it if it failed to provide him with millions of dollars.

The documents assert that he has been housed in a cell formerly occupied by Mexican Cartel boss El Chapo, an infamous global criminal who has since been transferred to a federal prison in Colorado known as the most secure in the country.

In another strange twist, the Metropolitan Correctional Center was the location of infamous billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s detention and controversial “suicide.”

Avenatti’s lawyers are asking for him to be removed from protective custody and placed in general population in order to effectively litigate his ongoing court case.

With the once-hyped potential presidential candidate literally being housed in El Chapo’s former jail cell, it’s hard to think of a more dramatic character arc for the celebrity lawyer. Around a year ago, Avenatti was still exploring the possibility of a campaign for the Democratic nomination.

As he fights against criminal charges that could carry a penalty of a life sentence in prison, it appears unlikely that Avenatti will be getting anywhere with any political ambitions anytime soon.
