WFTV An unemployed Lakeland man has entered a guilty plea on charges he made $7 billion in fraudulent wire transfers because Jesus wanted him to be wealthy, court documents say. In a heavily redacted criminal complaint, John Michael Haskew was accused of setting up the wire transfers on Dec. 9 and 10 from “a large, nationally renowned financial institution.” Investigators were tipped off to the suspicious wire transfers on Dec. 12, saying Haskew had processed numerous transactions totaling more than $7 billion. Haskew told agents he was “self-taught on the banking industry” and figured out how to make the fraudulent wire transfers through experimentation, the complaint said. The bank involved was only identified as “Bank A” in the complaint. When asked why he continued to make the wire transfers, Haskew told investigators that he believed he deserved the money, court documents said. “(He stated) that Jesus Christ created wealth for everyone,” the criminal complaint said. “Using this scheme, Haskew believed that he could obtain the wealth that Jesus Christ created for him and that belonged to him.”
A Florida man named John Michael Haskew believes that Jesus wanted him to be rich, so he devised a scheme to make fraudulent transactions at a bank and then stole $7 billion dollars. Even if you believed Jesus wanted to to be rich, maybe stop once you have stolen a couple million dollars, that’s rich enough and you might not tip anyone off. $7 billion dollars is just greedy, and we all know how Jesus felt about greed, it’s one of the seven deadly sins.
