  • Sir Maejor Page, 35, also known as Tyree Conyers-Page is charged with wire fraud and money laundering
  • Investigators say he set up non-profit Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta but pocketed donations for personal gain
  • Page’s lawyer claimed a $100,000 Ohio house bought using charity money was intended to be a ‘community center’

An actor turned Black Lives Matter activist who claims he’s the ‘world’s sexiest albino’ has gone on trial accused of conning donors out of $500,000.

Prosecutors say Sir Maejor Page, 35, also known as Tyree Conyers-Page, fraudulently used the funds to buy tailored suits, guns and even a home in Toledo, Ohio.

Page, who has had small roles in American Horror Story and tv show Constantine, is federally charged with wire fraud and two counts of money laundering.

In 2020, Page created social media and GoFundMe pages under the name of Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta and is accused of exploiting the murder of George Floyd to fraudulently collect half-a-million dollars from 1,000 donors. 

Investigators say he kept the money for himself to fund a lavish lifestyle, evidenced clips played in US District court on Tuesday in which he raps about making six figures while putting on gold cufflinks, the Toledo Blade reports.

Page’s lawyers disputed the allegations and told the court his client intended to use the property and the funds to set up a community or ‘battered women’s shelter’.

FBI agent Matthew Desorbo testified that money from the charity’s account was often used on restaurants and retailers in the Toledo area, with more than $100,000 spent on the house in the city’s Old West End.

Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta ended May 2020 in the red, according to Bank of America records shown to jurors.  But after Floyd was murdered by police officer Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis on May 25 that year, donations began rushing in. 

By mid-June, $36,493.80 had been donated from its Facebook fundraising page to the Bank of America account, as American was wracked by protests and discussion over police brutality and anti-black racism.

In July, $370,000 was transferred from the Facebook fundraiser to the Bank of America account, with another $53,000 wired in August, prosecutors allege. 

Page spent $108,000 on the house that forms part of the case against him in August as well.  

The non-profit was listed as being headquartered in Atlanta and received 1,000 donations after Facebook account holders set up donation portals for their birthdays or other occasions. 

But after the organization lost its federal tax-exempt status and its Georgia incorporation, donors became concerned and began asking questions.

Among them was a Facebook user called Sarah Mills whose message to Page was submitted as evidence.

‘It’s wrong what you are doing. You should not be tricking people in this way,’ she said. 

They were reassured the funds were being used to support Black Lives Matter causes.

At the time of his arrest, the FBI said Page tried to conceal the purchase in a non-disclosure agreement stating the transaction was entered ‘by and between Hi Frequency Ohio via Sir Maejor Page’ and the seller’s agent.

Desorbo detailed items recovered from Page’s home during a search which included two AR-15-style rifles and a Glock handgun worth more than $3,000 paid for using money transferred into his personal account from his BLM charity, the agent said.

Desorbo outlined other expenses paid for using the BLM Greater Atlanta debit card comprised of thousands of dollars  worth of furniture, electronics, and appliances.

Video played to the court by an assistant U.S. attorney Robert Melching showed Page bragging about owning ’16 blue suits’ and having ‘six figures’.

In one clip, he admonished ‘naysayers’ who queried his income by stating he was ‘out here fighting for justice’. 

In his opening arguments, Page’s lawyer Charles Boss explained that the property was not intended for ‘personal use’.

He also attempted to downplay the video of his client bragging about his new ‘crib-o’ as self-aggrandizement. 

The FBI raided the home and found  two AR-15-style rifles and a Glock handgun worth more than $3,000 as well as receipt for lavish goods

He stated that more than half they money was never spent because it was seized by federal agents following Page’s arrest in September 2020. 

The trial before Judge Jeffrey Helmick is expected to continue to the end of the week. If convicted, Page could be facing more than 20 years in jail.

Page refers to himself as the ‘world’s sexiest albino’ and has made a career as a bit-part actor appearing most notably in American Horror Story: Coven.

His Facebook page states he is a, ‘non-attorney activist, victim advocate and spokesperson’. 

Images from his profile show him posing up in suits or what appear to be high end hotel rooms.

Page is the adopted nephew of of Minnesota Supreme Court Justice and former NFL star Alan Page.

He was arrested in June 2016 for causing a disturbance outside a Donald Trump appearance in Atlanta, AJC reports.

While in May 2011, he was banned from the campus of University of Toledo for menacing and harassing the university president’s office.

He has also faced several arrests over the years for impersonating a police officer, incidents he attributes to his previous work as a security guard. 

After pleading not guilty to the latest offences, Page issued a statement to the Toledo Blade asserting his innocence.

‘It is to no surprise that the government wishes to move forward in a criminal case against a social justice activist,’ he said.

‘I maintain my position that I did not intentionally commit any crimes, as it is my only purpose in life to fight for those whose voices have been muffled and or silenced.

‘Had I violated any state or federal laws I have no problem owning that and working to correct my actions. I believe that I acted in good faith. I look forward to a fair and just due process under the law.’ 

 FBI agent Matthew Desorbo is set to be cross-examined during Wednesday’s hearing.
