The self-proclaimed “world’s sexiest albino” began his defense Tuesday after he was accused of creating a bogus Black Lives Matter sub-organization to steal nearly $500,000 from unsuspecting donors to fund a lavish lifestyle.

Sir Maejor Page, previously known as Tyree Conyers-Page, faces federal charges of wire fraud, one count of concealment money laundering and two counts of money laundering stemming from his Sept. 2020 arrest.

The actor turned activist to con man allegedly created a bank account in 2018 titled “Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta Inc.,” where he was the sole signer of the non-profit organization and received donations after Facebook users linked their birthday donation wish to the “non-profit” account.

He allegedly defrauded donors out of $467,345.18 after BLMGA’s tax-exempt status as a charity with the IRS was revoked.

Page didn’t have more than $5,000 in the account for the first two years, at one point he accumulated a balance of -$12.42, according to the FBI.

After George Floyd’s murder by Minnesota police officer Derick Chauvin during an encounter in May 2020, Page’s account saw an enormous increase in donations.

“In June 2020, BLMGA’s social media page received approximately $36,493.80 in donations; in July 2020, it received approximately $370,933.69 in donations; and in August 2020, an additional $59,914.69 in donations.”

While he claimed that none of the donated funds would be used for personal means, Page used a debit card linked to the account and made purchases “related to food, dining, entertainment, clothing, furniture, a home security system, tailored suits, and accessories.”

Page’s largest purchase using the donated funds was a home and an adjacent vacant lot in a residential neighborhood of Toledo, Ohio, valued at approximately $112,000 in August.

The fraudster went a step further, in an attempt to conceal his ownership of the property, by having the real estate transaction state the purchase was “by and between Hi Frequency Ohio via Sir Maejor Page” and the seller’s agent.

Page was charged with one count of wire fraud, one count of concealment money laundering and two counts of money laundering.
Page began made his major purchases in the summer of 2020, at the height of the COVID pandemic, and George Floyd protests. instagram

A month after purchasing the property, Page bought a Glock handgun and two AR-15-styled rifles from an Oregon-based gun shop.

During his testimony, FBI agent Matthew Desorbo emphasized Page’s use of the funds for personal gain, noting multiple purchases at the Pyramid Lounge in Toledo, purchasing 16 blue suits and transferring money from the BLMGA account to his own CashApp.

Desorbo described Page’s spending as “lavish purchases” while he questioned the source of his income, according to the Toledo Blade.

The FBI agent showcased several videos Page posted to social media that claimed to depict a change in lifestyle from before and after June 2020, when the funds began rolling in.

Old videos Page recorded of himself were played to the court on Tuesday, with Desorbo narrating the change in clothing and demeanor as Page sported “fancy suits and sunglasses.”

Defense lawyer, Charles Boss, argued Page’s boasting about his then new clothing and “crib-o” were a “young man’s braggadocio,” the newspaper reported.

He noted Page’s modest salary from the organization was $37,694 plus travel, a claim Desorbo said went against BLMGA’s pledge of not paying staff salary.

Boss also claimed Page didn’t spend more than half the donated money, $263,318, on charitable causes because it had been seized by the FBI after his arrest.

In one video, originally recorded in 2021, and then reposted last month, Page gave a tour of the Toledo house he claimed was to be used as a community house or battered women’s home — and not his personal residence.

Other videos captured Page bragging about his newly purchased clothing, office space in Atlanta, tailored suits nice cufflinks and “$150 dollar ties,” as he also boasted about the position of his hotel room.

“My room way up at the top…at the top top…they put the bottom feeders on these floors….”

Before becoming a civil rights activist turned conman, Page landed background roles including “Need for Speed” and “Lets be Cops” before being cast in his largest role, an appearance on “American Horror Story.”

“In summary, Page has spent over $200,000 on personal items generated from donations received from the BLMGA social media page with no identifiable purchase or expenditure for social or racial justice,” the FBI said in Sept. 2020.

Page’s trial had been pushed back several times, most recently in August, according to WTVG.
