"Maurice Woodard" AKA "Marshall Woodard" is a religious scammer from way back. For many years he has claimed to have a PhD in "Old Testment Hebrew" from Trinity International Unversity in Deerfield, IL. He even posted his fake PhD on Facebook and on LnkedIn, among other places. He has preached in a number of churches partly on the basis of having that PhD, and in addition owned an online Rapture Ministries Inc. that apparently did little other than collect money, and which he used to attract women.

I have a letter from Trinity International University confirming that Mr. Woodard was never even a student there. When he was confronted with this fact, Mr. Woodard stated that the PhD was from the University of Maryland.

I posted the fact that the PhD from Trinity International University is a fake. At that time, September 2016, Mr. Woodard changed his posts. If he has not changed them again, what you will find now is a supposed diploma indicating he is a Doctor of Divinity from "Trinity Temple Outreach School of Religion International Overcoming School of Religion Institute for Christian Works Bible College and Seminary." If you would like the details about this almost undoubted diploma mill, you can find them on "Maurice Marshall, Con Artist, Defrauder, Scammer." Briefly, one of the three organizations does not exist. The second is owned by an Episcopalian, while Mr. Woodard is a Baptist. The third is not accredited properly and its home office is not where it is stated to be.

On "Maurice Marshall, Con Artist, Defrauder, Scammer." you will also find details about his latest scam. Briefly, he has defrauded a 72-year-old woman out of a house and issued death threats and done violence against her when she tried to do something about his defrauding her. She is now in hiding from him.

Does Maurice Marshall Woodard pretend to be a man of God? Or does he actually believe he is? You can find a number of places on the Web where women have documented his scams against them. Meanwhile, he continues to talk about his God. Matter of fact, he has stated that he prayed to his God and was told by Him that he should have this woman's house. She did put his name on the deed, on the basis of a promise he made to pay for household expenses for the two of them for the rest of their years in this life. He never paid a penny, for the house or later, and refused to discuss doing so.

So do be very, very careful if you run into this man. He could convince the Eskimoes to buy refrigerators, so just know this and do not fall for any of his schemes, religious or otherwise.
