Bad: Owing the government some money.
Really bad: Giving them a fake bank routing number.
Really, really dumb: Making “over 70 transactions worth $7 billion with that routing number.”
The kicker: Blaming Jesus when the feds come for you.
A Florida man who told authorities he made $7 billion in illegal transfers from a bank because “Jesus Christ created wealth for everyone” has pleaded guilty to a single charge.
John Haskew of Lakeland pleaded guilty Thursday to making a false statement to the federal government.
That’s the worst application of the Prosperity Gospel I’ve ever seen.
And of course it’s Florida. That’s the least surprising part of the story.
