25 Thieves

by | Mar 21, 2024 | Mario Murillo Ministries | 50 comments

25 thieves are posing as Mario Murillo Ministries. I am writing to you because they are stealing your money. They are good at looking like us.

They steal our pictures and build entire pages that seem to be us.  And here is the kicker: even after we report them and prove they are fake—social media refuses to take them down.

Why does this situation justify an entire blog?

Because this year alone I estimate they have probably stolen enough money to finance an entire crusade.

Think of that. An entire outreach to tens of thousands of people stolen by these despicable characters.

Satan will stop at nothing to hinder our outreach, but this tactic is a new low.

Many of them begin by sending you an email that is supposedly from me. But if you look closely at the email address, you can see the spelling is off. Just one or two letters that will clue you to it being fake.

Another claimed to be one of our staff members working in our media department. Oh brother!

They will tell you to contact me and I will give you a word from God. That is the last thing I would ever do. I abhor the idea of using “a word from God” as a fundraiser. And there is no way that I would randomly pick out people and send them emails.

Another telltale sign is that they refer to themselves as Pastor Mario Murillo. I have never referred to myself as a pastor. I am an evangelist.

Some say that we have brought this on ourselves because we never ask for money.

The truth is we do ask for money but it is only when God speaks to us to ask.

I want everything you give to make it safely into our ministry.

We take great pains to make sure your giving is secure. Especially now that the harvest has become overwhelming.

Here is the official link to give to Mario Murillo Ministries: https://pushpay.com/g/mariomurillo
You can also text MMM to 77977

Most of all I ask that you pray for us as we fight the good fight. Phoenix is going to be big!

    I tried to give to your ministry last year, my bank kept rejecting. I also never received confirmation you received. I haven’t sent again.

    • Mario Murillo

      Please call us at 1 800-980-3424 and we can help make sure your gift goes through. God bless you.

      • Irene McHone

        I tried to read your blog on Chrome and it kept jumping around so switched to Google. The enemy seems to be trying to stop what God has planned. The battle is real but God will help you win the war!

        • Mary Shaw

          Try the web browser DuckDuckGo. It doesn’t allow fb and google to track you either.

      • Oneida Cox

        I use to give you monthly here on Facebook! But after my wallet was stolen I had to get new credit cards so it stopped! I also on my birthday month we can choose an organization we want to raise money for I chose yours for the past 3 years! Did you ever receive that money? I now give monthly through your website! Thanks for the heads ups

      • Sheryl J

        I also have been trying to donate to your ministry for two years now and it would not allow me.
        I live in Barbados.

    • Alice Barton

      I can see now that I am one whom scammers tried to scam but, thank God I have not lost money to them! Thank you for the heads up! I love your ministry and have been watching you for years now! Since 80’s

  2. Donna

    Mario, No Weapon That is Formed Against You Will Not Prosper. People of God open your eyes!

    • Debbie O'Bar


  3. Beverley Hudson

    Have given and will support as I am able
    May God bless you all abundantly as you continue in Ministry with, and for the Lord Jesus Christ . 🙏🏼🥰

  4. Pearl Dalton

    I have received these scams and I know they are fake. So I report and delete and block them. I send my offerings to you in your envelope.

    • Katherine Whalen

      I always send my giving in a check to the Mario Murillo Ministries office at
      P.O. Box 408
      Lafayette, Tennessee 37083
      Never had a problem. They always send me an acknowledgment of receiving it.

  5. John and Karen DeYoung

    In all things, praise God, Rise up army, this is how we fight our battles, the song goes it may look like we’re surrounded but we’re surrounded by you oh God. and we’ve already won. Volunteer J&K De Y.

    • Debbie O'Bar

      Amen! Thank you, Lord!

    • Eric Moon

      God Bless you MMM. Justice, Judgment, and Glory days coming. You are an AMAZING man of God. A great evangelist. I volunteered at your event in Roseville. What an incredible experience of the Holy Spirit.

  6. Ann Harper

    I have had these emails sent to me but have been aware of their deception . Praise God for His prompting.

  7. Heato

    Stolen money has a curse on it. May these 25 thieves be blessed with a godly sorrow that leads them to Jesus. Their only alternative is to try to assemble and finance a life with money that has a curse on it. It will be prove to be a fortaste of hell for them.

  8. East Fork

    Stealing money that says ” IN GOD WE TRUST” on it from an organization that HAS PARTNERED WITH GOD is a really stupid idea.

  9. Robyn Shaye O'Neal

    My prayer of declaration I send to the Throne Room of our Jehovah-jireh is that Mario’s newsletter today will prompt the saints to give, and the giving will more than restore what the devil stole! The Lord released me to give what came in unexpectedly yesterday as an unexpected love offering. Thank You, Lord, for always making the enemy fall on his own sword! Glory!

  10. Susan Jones

    CONGRATULATIONS on the New & Bigger Location at AZ State Fair Grounds, Mario! The LORD is with you! Your times are in HIS Hands! Conserve your energy for the preaching of His WORD, and healing ministry the LORD GOD ordained you to pursue & to do.
    In that Light, might I offer these words of encouragement? As Paul, the Apostle, wrote:
    “…forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of GOD in Christ Jesus.” (Phil. 3:13-14)
    In the Mighty Name of YESHUA, the MESSIAH, our LORD JESUS, the CHRIST, so be it. Amen.
    Thank you, Mario! BLES-SED be the name of the LORD!

  11. Kathie Vanderfin

    This is a perfect example of when the “body of Christ”; needs to come together in unity. Mario, you have so selflessly dedicated yourself as a true ambassador, serving “Jesus Christ”. You have willingly put your life on the line; by the power of God’s Spirit and His Word, people are being set free and healed, many coming as they are called to receive the “free gift of Salvation.” I believe God has called me as His servant; to send this message out to media sources, for God to expose the enemy’s plans to rob, kill, and destroy people. May this be a wake up call to those who are “the called”; to come together in prayer, and to expose Satan’s stragedy and counterfeit plan. A plan to deter people from the calling of God’s Spirit, Who leads us to freedom and Salvation through “Jesus.” John 3:16;
    2 Chronicles 7:14;
    Ephesians 6: 7-20

  12. Dawn Meier

    I have been hacked. Not fun. I only posted God saying. We are expecting money to come soon. On God grace. Thank God for the over all peace. It really helps sleep. My husband is a plumber and we work together. It’s like work came to a stop. I tithe everything when I have money. I’m doing what God tells me to do. I’m Praying everyday 🙏. I’m expecting something amazing is going to happen today. Enjoy this wonderful day GOD has blessed us with. GOD is absolutely good. Hallelujah praise the LORD God Almighty. God bless your family’s health and finances. Thank God for all the wonderful blessings. In Jesus’ holy name we pray amen 🙏 🙌. Hugs

  13. Peter

    somebody told me that it was you and that you had a dream that elvis will be showing up at the next crusade, the glorified elvis and I foolishly believed and gave

  14. Sandra

    Praying for the greatest harvest ever in Jesus name. And I pray a stopping of the enemy now in the name of Jesus our soon coming King! I come against these lying evil spirits in the name of Jesus and by His might it shall cease!

  15. Winfrid Ann Gillon

    It would help you greatly if you disclosed their names and their modus operandi so genuine people that want to contribute to the real cause of God can benefit by not losing their money on false so-called prophets.

  16. Karen Arndt

    Thanks for the heads up. Yes one of the scammers tried to fool me, but like you said, there were a few telltale signs…
    Love and appreciate your ministry and your family. I post Firepower on Facebook every week and enjoy Todd Coconato’s ministry as well. You guys are strong and admirable men of God who are a huge blessing and I am grateful that I see no compromise.
    God bless,

  17. Larry Lavallee

    Just more “Proof” of how effective MMM is in Evangelizing!!! To see lost Souls saved thru the Power of The Holy Spirit & growing GOD’S end time Army. The Victory is ours thru the Cross & shed Blood of our Savior JESUS

  18. David Maddox

    This is of course, the old “phishing” scam. Satan is behind this and will stop at nothing, to hinder the spread of the Gospel. And he will fail. I can spot this type of thing, but many folks can’t. Thanks for the heads up, Mario. GOD will triumph!

  19. Douglas Krause

    Fight the good fight, the LORD will take care of the rest.

  20. Sharon Hyde

    I am a Canadian that lives 2 1/2 hrs. from Toronto. Would love to see you in a Southern Ontario conference. I cannot believe how evil people have become and yet we shouldn’t be surprised with the time we are living in. Stay safe and keep up the Wonderful work you are doing and may these thieves be fully exposed. Blessings Sharon

    • Joseph Liberadzki

      Yes, Toronto would be a place very needful of the gospel.

  21. Lisa Dunnam

    I signed up to be a partner on your website. What number can I call to make sure I was in the correct website?!

    • Mario Murillo

      1 800-980-3424 Joesy will assist you. Thank you for giving!

  22. Ron Rupp

    Thank you for the heads up, so far the only contact is saying you will deduct at a certain date which correlates with same dates of previous giving, what the enemy stole he will have to give back 7 times…just like the coward he is

  23. Sue

    Thanks for letting us know to look closer before giving to someone….the devil is a sneaky liar

  24. Janene Wilson

    Take that satan! I just gave money towards evangelism on your website. Me and my family support you 100% and praying for you and your ministry. Thank you for letting us know what was going on.

  25. Becky

    Brother Mario, I am shocked and saddened to learn of these scams!

    I must say, though, that I occasionally noticed that when people would post comments on your site, on the sidebar, that at times someone would post in reply for them to contact that person, and it always seemed odd. Yes, the name would be misspelled, or they would want them to phone them!

    I am so glad that these false people are being exposed! They have a lot of reckoning coming when God balances the books!

    I know that you do not work for the praise of man, but I hope you will accept these words from a fellow Believer that it is nice and reassuring to find a man of God who is standing strong for God, for the Glory of God, for the salvation of souls, through the Power of Almighty God!!! I gain a lot from your Fire Power program on FB also!

  26. Lynda Schwemmer

    I was not aware of this. I will be more observant now.

  27. Debbie McLaughlin

    I did so last year and wondered if authentic as I received immediate responses saying it was Mario. I accepted it as such. It cames as a message on Facebook

  28. Paul Rosenfeld

    Just think of the curse that comes on that stolen money. *shudder*

  29. Brenda

    Very sad. You’re a strong real evangelist. And keep telling us truth. Shout it out
    Now it’s so similar to President D J T. The evil ones keep trying to steal and destroy him. Funny the others evil ways are so protected .
    But one day evil will be judge. You’re a good man. Press on.

    I get scam emails almost every time that I post a comment on your site. Usually they say you “have a word for me” and want me to give to an orphanage that does not exist. I called Joesy and she filled me in on the facts the first time that it happened. Now, I just hide the comments. 25 thieves, wow, I thought there were about 3.

  31. Jennifer

    I signed up to help at a Mario Murillo Ministry event in Tangent Oregon in September 2024. I received a text from a friend.

  32. Marijane

    thank you, I have seen words misspelled too. I am 75 and will be looking for these thieves. watch you almost daily, praying for you.

  33. Sharon J Palmer

    I’ve been praising God for your latest breakthrough with the new venue, brother Mario. Hallelujah! He is faithful. Like so many others, I still pray for you, your family, and MMM every night. God bless you.

  34. Terry Haight

    Thanks for exposing the enemy. He comes to kill steal and destroy. So this day I decree that the enemies of God and His chosen people will not be able to steal from this or any other worthy ministry. In the Mighty Name of Jesus. AMEN! We recently sent a donation and have gotten a receipt from you for it. So happy to help you out.

  35. Kate

    So I found this site that is most likely not yours and I got this warning message.
    The connection to http://www.mariomurillo.com is not secure
    So, people should pay attention – notice it says .com and not .org -people need to read the URL’s very carefully because this is where people get tripped up.
    I am sure there are many more like this.
    If you get a message that the site is not secure – do NOT click on it as it has potential to infect your computer.

  36. Rhonda

    It’s good to warn people! I haven’t seen these but there are always thieves trying to deceive people. God bless Mario Murllo Ministries!

  37. Gerlinde Green

    Proverbs 6:31 But if he is found out he must restore seven times; he must give his whole substance of his house! I declare it!

  38. Linda Duncan

    Ive gotten that kind of junk before, I don’t acknowledge it, I know it’s a scam, and I don’t fall for it. I know point blank good and well you’re not going to send an email saying to contact you that you have a word for me. I’ve hot news for those scammers, I’ve got just a bit more sense. Congratulations on getting your fairground for your revival. God, sure is GOOD! GOD BLESS YOU BROTHER.
