Teen Who Posed As Doctor Arrested Again On Fraud Charges
Malachi Love-Robinson, a Florida man who posed as a medical doctor when he was a teenager, is reportedly facing new fraud and grand theft charges.
According to CNN, the Delray Beach Police Department claims Love-Robinson, now 23 years old and a contracted employee for a shipping broker, is accused of stealing from his employer in early 2020 by transferring payments totalling $10,129.81 from the business’ account to his personal one.
Love-Robinson was arrested and jailed in Palm Beach County, Florida. He has since been released on bond. Formerly known as “Dr. Love,” Love-Robinson served time in jail in 2019 for pretending to be a doctor and defrauding an elderly “patient” out of $35,000.
According to local news station WBPF, back in 2016, Love-Robinson was exposed for pretending to be “Dr. Malachi Love-Robinson, PHD, HHP-C, AMP-C” co-founder, president and CEO of New Birth New Life Holistic and Alternative Medical Center & Urgent Care center in West Palm Beach. He was 18 years old at the time, but claimed to be 25.
Dr. Love was charged with a third-degree felony for practicing medicine without a license and was issued several citations by the Department of Health.
Additionally, in 2015, when he was 17, he was caught posing as a gynecologist in a pregnant woman’s exam room at St. Mary’s Medical Center Campus in West Palm Beach. Police said at the time that he had been roaming the halls for more than a month, but that he hadn’t committed a crime.
