Gerald A. Poynter, also known as "Brother Jerry Love," admitted to leading a tax fraud conspiracy in which co-conspirators from eight states filed fraudulent tax returns seeking $96 million in refunds. The IRS mistakenly paid out $3.5 million of those refunds to Poynter and other filers, including "branch managers" who recruited conspiracy participants. As the leader, Poynter would receive a cut of each refund, which he directed the others to call "love donations" with checks written out to "Jerry Love Ministries." [KCBJ]
