Five thieves in regard to monks:

1. A monk who encourages rich people to join the Order under him, so that he may possess much wealth for his own temple.

2. A monk untruthfully blames a spiritually advanced monk of a transgression.

3. A monk favors the rich householders who give much to his temple, while ignoring others of less wealth.

4. A monk who untruthfully boasts of spiritual attainments for the sake of acquiring delicious and good alms food.

5. A monk who untruthfully boasts of spiritual attainments for the sake of acquiring funds.

(from the Vinaya, Suttavibhanga 3.88-89)
