Bishop Eddie Long is being sued by former New Birth Missionary Baptist Church members who claim the embattled megachurch pastor encouraged them to invest money with a company despite being informed the investor had a $3 million capital deficit.

According to the AJC, the suit was filed late last month in DeKalb County state court. The suit alleges that Long’s assistant had been warned by an unidentified caller that Ephren W. Taylor was untrustworthy two weeks before Taylor held a series of financial seminars in October 2009 at New Birth in Lithonia.

The suit was filed by 12 former church members who say they lost more than $1 million in the alleged ponzi scheme. New Birth, Long and Taylor are all named in the suit.
