Malachi Love-Robinson who posed as a doctor as a teen is charged with stealing $10,000
Malachi Love-Robinson began working as a carrier at the United States of Freight, a shipping company based in Del Ray Beach.
Investigators now assert that Love-Robinson defrauded the company more than $10,000.
According to The Palm Beach Post, the United States of Freight ‘serves as a broker, connecting shippers to transport companies for a fee’. Customers are supposed to pay the company directly, who will then pass on a cut of the sale to the carrier.
However, Love-Robinson allegedly ‘created dummy accounts and directed five unwitting clients to pay directly into them’.
The owner of the United States of Freight noticed the missing money before he contacted authorities who commenced an investigation.
Love-Robinson has now been released on bond pending an upcoming appearance in court.
What we know so far about Malachi Love-Robinson
Back in 2016, Malachi Love-Robinson made headlines after he was charged with pretending practicing medicine without a license. He was just 18 years old at the time. Love-Robinson was illegally operating a medical practice, complete with an office, a lab coat and stethoscope.
He was busted after an undercover police officer went to his office, The New Birth New Life Medical Center and complained of lethargy, sneezing and a sore throat. He took the undercover officer’s temperature and also used a stethoscope to check her heart and lungs.
He then told the female cop that she was suffering from allergies and recommended she take an over-the-counter medication.
It was later learned that Love-Malachi also stole $35,000 from an elderly patient.
Love-Robinson initially defended his actions in several interviews and claimed that he never told anyone he was a medical doctor. However, he has claimed to have a Ph.D., but has never shown documentation or said what field it is in.
‘There are many types of degrees out there that hold the title of doctor – whether they are physicists or engineers. Just because someone has the title of doctor in front of their name does not necessarily imply “MD”,’ he told ABC.
However, he later pleaded guilty to grand theft and practicing medicine without a license and was jailed for three-and-a-half years.
The youngster has also previously done time in a Virginia prison for trying to buy a Lexus by using a fake earnings statement.
