A Florida man accused of stealing $7 billion from “a large, nationally renowned financial institution” says he did it because Jesus wanted him to be wealthy.
Police arrested John Haskew (Pictured) for allegedly setting up fraudulent wire transfers, which the unemployed man says he did to pay off a debt to the federal government. He told police he was “self-taught on the banking industry” and learned how to make the fraudulent wire transfers. He added that his scheme would allow him to “obtain the wealth that Jesus Christ created for him and that belonged to him.”
Haskew is facing up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine
