Joel Osteen is a pastor at a gigantic church in Houston, Texas. The megachurch service sees tens of thousands of people at services each week and the services are televised as well. With so many people in attendance at services each week, you can bet some huge money is donated.
Thieves reportedly made off with $600,000 in donations from parishioners recently. The money was in the form of cash and checks and was placed in the safe inside Osteen's office. There was reportedly around $200,000 in cash and about $400,000 in checks reports The Examiner.
Some envelopes that have credit card details from people that donated were also stolen. A church employee and an off-duty sheriff's deputy reported the theft. A church spokesperson says that the money is fully insured.
The church is also warning those who donated money recently to watch their accounts for fraudulent activity. As of now, no arrests have been made in the theft. It's unclear if there are any evidence or suspects at this time. The theft was made sometime between Sunday afternoon and Monday morning.
There is no indication at this time that it was an inside job, though no word of a break-in has been made either. Perhaps more clues will be offered by police at the investigation continues.

Kmart Black Friday
Black Friday is still a couple of months away, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t start getting prepared now. If you want to get in on the action in the best way possible it is important to have a good understanding...

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home.
