Maejor Page, a Toledo, Ohio resident and self-proclaimed leader of Black Lives Matter (BLM), is being accused of defrauding donors out of hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations, reports 100PercentFedUp.com.
He was active in the BLM group of “Greater Atlanta” until he was kicked out. He’s pictured below with Jesse Jackson. He ended up in Toledo, Ohio where he continued to pose as a BLM leader.
Page reportedly spent a large amount of the donations he received on “personal expenses” such as buying a house and paying for prostitutes.

According to 100PercentFedUp, in 2016 Page was interviewed in Atlanta for being arrested several times for impersonating a police officer even though he protested against the police.
He was kicked out of the Atlanta BLM movement and landed in Toledo, where he scammed people, saying he is a BLM leader.
On Monday, the DoJ released a statement describing how Page got away with swindling so many people out of their money:
Acting U.S. Attorney Bridget M. Brennan announced today that a federal grand jury sitting in Cleveland returned a four-count indictment charging Sir Maejor Page, a.k.a. Tyree Conyers-Page, age 32, of Toledo, Ohio, with three counts of money laundering and one count of wire fraud. It is alleged that the defendant created a 501(c)(3) Facebook page entitled “Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta” and later used it to defraud donors out of more than $450,000 after BLMGA’s tax-exempt status as a charity with the IRS was revoked.
“These allegations involve fraudulent misrepresentations that the donations received would support Black Lives Matter (Atlanta, Georgia) when, as stated in the indictment, those funds were actually used by the defendant for personal expenses he incurred in Toledo and elsewhere,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Bridget M. Brennan. “It is our sincere hope that these charges help raise awareness about online scams and efforts by some to exploit the name and purpose of non-profit organizations for personal gain.”
