Back in 1987, James Randi and his assistant, Steve Shaw exposed Peter and his wife scamming his flock with an old psychic trick. Everyone has to fill out special forms before they were admitted. Peter's wife would send the information to Peter via a hidden earphone and receiver. Peter and his wife had this scam well rehearsed. It looked like Peter was getting messages from god.
James Randi and Steve Shaw tapped into Peter's radio frequency and caught the whole spectacle on video tape. Peter Popoff promptly went bankrupt. Now Peter seems to be doing all right with the "Miracle Spring Water" scam. Popoff's salary in 2004 was over $500,000, and his assets include a 2006 Porsche convertible worth $90,000.
Wikipedia has an article on Peter Popoff.
Peter Popoff is a perfect example how faith makes people gullible.

Thats wild though. I didn't know James Randi had exposed him. I just did a quick Google search, and found this youtube video if anyone wants to see it.
