    The Church of Almighty God, also known as Eastern Lightning, was formed in China in 1991 by either Zhao Weishan, currently the administrative leader of the Church of Almighty God, or Yang Xiangbin, the woman the cult identifies as the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

    They are heavily persecuted in China, they've been accused of murdering people who want to leave, and they are known for scamming translators using many different names for their churches, names like Christian Holy City Church/Church of New Hymn/The Church Before The Seat of Christ/The God Loving Church/The Overcoming Church, all in the US alone. A link proving the scamming is:

    They use tactics such as flirting to recruit new followers, and they spam Reddit using many different accounts - one time I came across a thread that was just them commenting on a video produced by the cult. Additionally, they are likely working with Scientology because of the persecution in China -, a human rights association created by the cult, follows Eric Roux, a member of OSA.
