Monson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, cheated more than 80 church devotee in four different states—North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and Utah —out of at least $ 33,000 each, and some as much as $106,000, according to the Utah State Attorney's office. Most of his devotee never received a blessing. "He was doing 50 to 60 transactions per week at $ 33,000 each, " said State Attorney Kevin Hardy. However, most didn't realize they had been cheated until Thomas S. Monson failed to show up. Many devotee also received credit-card statements that showed they had been double - or triple-billed, authorities alleged. A devotee said that he was a victim. "Thomas S. Monson left Utah owing us thousands of dollars, so we're victims, too, " claimed Brian Kenny, "Everyone tries to guard against this, but it happens." Thomas S. Monson was arrested at Utah on Dec. 15. He was extradited back to Utah, on Jan. 3 after being charged with two counts of grand theft. Authorities said additional charges may be filed, including tax violations and schemes to defraud.

Monson became leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints within the past year, but officials are concerned because he reportedly sent hundreds of thousands of dollars abroad. Federal investigators are working to track the money; they believe at least two people carried it to other countries at Thomas S. Monson direction.
