世界名人網訊 休斯頓-美國檢察官賴恩·帕特里克(Ryan K.Patrick)宣布,兩名休斯頓地區的男子被指控試圖以欺詐手段向外國政府出售5000萬枚不存在的N95口罩。

現年46歲的Paschal Ngozi Eleanya今天向當局報到,預計將在下午2點在美國地方法院法官Sam S. Sheldon法官面前首次露面。當局於2020年11月20日拘留了55歲的阿拉雷·杜利特爾(Arael Doolittle),他於昨天初次露面,並準備於11月25日上午10點舉行傳訊和拘留。

聯邦大陪審團於2020年11月19日退回了三項控告書。兩人均因其在向外國政府出售未真正擁有的5000萬枚3M型號1860 N95防毒面具中的作用而受到指控。起訴書還指控他們欺騙外國政府口罩的總購買價超過3.17億美元。

根據起訴書,Doolittle,Eleanya及其經紀人就口罩的銷售價格進行了談判,該價格是3M設定的公開定價的五倍。指控稱,兩人預計將從欺詐計劃中個人獲得高達2.75億美元的收入。根據他們的陳述,外國政府據稱將資金用於完成購買。

當局在交易無法完成之前就將其中斷。

如果被定罪,杜利特爾(Doolittle)和埃莉亞(Eleanya)因串謀罪將面臨最高五年的監禁,而兩項電匯欺詐罪中的每項最高可判處20年監禁。這些費用中的每一項都可能被處以最高25萬美元的罰款。

特勤局進行了調查。助理美國檢察官賈斯汀·馬。↗ustin R. Martin)正在起訴此案。

總檢察長威廉·巴爾(William P.Barr)成立了COVID-19 屯積和價格調查工作組,負責協調全國各地反托拉斯司與美國檢察官之間涉及個人防護裝備的非法活動的工作。衛生和公共服務部已發布通知,指定不得以高昂的價格屯積或出售衛生和醫療用品的類別。

請公眾向國家災難欺詐中心(NCDF)的全國熱線舉報COVID-19欺詐,屯積或價格欺詐行為,電話為(866)720-5721,或訪問美國司法部的NCDF網站。

起訴是對犯罪行為的正式指控,而不是證據。除非通過適當的法律程序定罪,否則被告將被視為無罪。

Two Houston men charged with attempting to fraudulently sell 50 million masks

HOUSTON – Two Houston area men have been charged for attempting to fraudulently sell 50 million non-existent N95 facemasks to a foreign government, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick.

Paschal Ngozi Eleanya, 46, turned himself in to authorities today and is expected to make his initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Sam S. Sheldon at 2 p.m. Authorities took Arael Doolittle, 55, into custody Nov. 20. He made his initial appearance yesterday and is set for an arraignment and detention hearing Nov. 25 at 10 a.m.

A federal grand jury returned the three-count indictment Nov. 19. Both are charged for their role in a scheme to sell 50 million 3M model 1860 N95 respirator masks to a foreign government they did not actually possess. The indictment also alleges they defrauded a foreign government out of more than $317 million - the total purchase price of the masks

According to the indictment, Doolittle, Eleanya and their brokers negotiated a sales price for the masks that was five times the public list price that 3M had set. The two expected to personally obtain up to $275 million as a result of the fraudulent scheme, according to the charges. Based on their representations, the foreign government allegedly wired the funds to complete the purchase.

Authorities disrupted the transaction before it could be completed.

If convicted, both Doolittle and Eleanya face up to five years in prison for conspiracy and up to 20 years in prison for each of the two counts of wire fraud. Each of these charges also carry a possible $250,000 maximum fine.

The Secret Service conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Justin R. Martin is prosecuting the case.

Attorney General William P. Barr created the COVID-19 Hoarding and Price Gouging Task Force which coordinates efforts between the Antitrust Division and U.S. Attorneys across the country wherever illegal activity involving protective personal equipment occurs. The Department of Health and Human Services has issued a notice designating categories of health and medical supplies that must not be hoarded or sold for exorbitant prices.

The public is asked to report COVID-19 fraud, hoarding or price-gouging to the National Center for Disaster Fraud’s (NCDF) National Hotline at (866) 720-5721 or visit The Department of Justice’s NCDF website.

An indictment is a formal accusation of criminal conduct, not evidence. A defendant is presumed innocent unless convicted through due process of law.
