“God told me to do it” – U.S. pastor who stole $1.3 million from church members says

Eli Regalado, a pastor residing in the United States, claims God told him to steal $1.3 million from his church members in a cryptocurrency scam.

Eli and his wife, Kaitlyn, are accused of breaking Colorado’s anti-fraud, licencing, and registration rules after creating and selling “INDXcoin,” a cryptocurrency, to Christians in the state.

According to a recent press statement from the state’s securities office, the couple allegedly informed potential investors that the Lord had told them that if they invested, they would become wealthy.
