Nuwaubian Sect Linked to Fake Checks

WXIA-TV 11 Alive/October 2, 2003

Three members tied to a controversial Nuwaubian Nation religious sect are being charged with forging fake certified checks to purchase two homes in Stone Mountain, Ga.

DeKalb County police claim the men planned to use the checks to buy new land to reestablish a home base for the Yamassee Nuwaubian Mour/Moore Tribal Community. Their actions would have defrauded the U.S. Postal Service and John Wills Homes, which owns the Bibb County property.

Police said the men -- William Carroll, also known as "Nayyaa Rafl El," Robert C. Dukes, also known as "Nayya Elisha EL" and Darius Sampson, also known as "KhuFu" -- used documents in the form of certified checks that they created called "certified tender of payment certificate" and "statement of assignment in accounts."

The allegedly fraudulent checks were created after Carroll filed a lien for $283,900,000 with the Clerk of Superior Court in DeKalb County against the U.S. Postal Service payroll bank account/assets and real property.

An investigation revealed that two of the suspects are post office employees. Police have not specified which two they are.

All three men are charged with theft by deception and identity fraud, police said.

The trio is believed to be affiliated with the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors in Putnam County, which was raided last year on suspicions of minors being transported across state lines for sex. Police arrested the group's leader -- 36-year-old took Dwight D. York -- and his longtime associate, 33-year-old Kathy Johnson.
