Here’s one way to drastically reduce your chances in the afterlife . . .
A 27-year-old woman named Shareafa Watkins went to a Baptist church outside New Orleans a while back, and said she didn’t have enough money to pay her power bill. So they decided to help her out, and wrote a check to cover it.
Apparently it happened in late 2014, and no one at the church even remembers her. But a pastor was going through their books last month when he realized a bunch of money was missing.
And it turned out she used the account number and routing number on the check to pay a bunch of OTHER bills . . . to the tune of about TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS.
From January of last year until the middle of last month, she used the church’s money to pay her cell phone bill . . . her cable bill . . . a few other utilities . . . her auto insurance . . . and her car payment.
The cops tracked her down last Thursday, and she admitted she used the account info to set up the payments on her cell phone.
She’s facing charges for identity theft, and illegal transfer of funds.
