Prosecutors say Winans sold fake Saudi Arabian oil bonds to more than 1,000 investors in 2007 and 2008. He promised 100 percent returns in two months, then used the money for his personal expenses or to pay off earlier investors. About 600 people are still owed $5 million.

Detroit pastor and gospel singer Marvin Winans, who delivered the eulogy at pop star Whitney Houston’s funeral this year, was robbed and carjacked at a gas station in his home city Wednesday afternoon, CNN affiliates WXYZ and  WDIV report.


Winans, pastor at Perfecting Church on Detroit’s east side, had just walked out of the Detroit station’s convenience store and was about to pump gas into his SUV when four men exited the store and attacked him, he told WXYZ.

The attackers kicked him and took his wallet and his purple 2012 Infiniti QX56 SUV, he said. Winans suffered cuts and bruises to his face, hands and arms, and his pants were torn, WDIV reported.


“This kind of nonsense just has to stop … it’s just the savageness of what’s happening in the streets. We just have to take a look at ourselves and say this has to stop,” he told WXYZ.


Detroit police are investigating, WXYZ reported.

According to New York Post, the Late Super Great of all times Whitney Houston will be laid to rest this week.  RIP Whitney

According to Fox 2 News,  Funeral arrangements are set for Whitney Houston. She will be laid to rest Saturday in New Jersey. Her family is planning a private funeral in Newark.

Pastor Winans is now saying goodbye to his friend, and her mother has asked him to deliver the eulogy.

“If you scratch the surface, it didn’t take you long to find out that she was still that little girl from New Jersey,” he said.

However, that little girl, who we all knew as a superstar, is gone.

“I really do miss Whitney,” Winans remarked.

Winans, who is also a pastor at Detroit’s Perfecting Church, knew Whitney Houston and her family very well.

“When she was here in November, she was at church. I did not know … that was the last time I would see her,” he explained.
