An Italian banker, Gilberto Baschiera is considered a modern-day Robin Hood, but a regretful one. But why a regretful one? For 7 years, he secretly transferred money to poorer clients from the wealthy ones so his poor clients could qualify for loans. He made no profit out of it. His plan was to give his poor clients their loans, returning the money to the wealthy owners. Most of his clients had their loans and rejected returning the illegal money to owners, or didn’t get their loans and rejected giving the money back. After 7 years he transferred about 1 million euros. When it was revealed, he was fired and his house was taken from him. The clients he helped refused to support him during the trials and he was all alone in the end although he helped them and risked his own life. He says “if I had the chance I would never do that again.” As you can see in the photo above, currently he prefers to be away from people, closer to nature and animals.
