Baruch Feldheim, 43, is facing charges of assault and making false statements to the feds on Sunday outside his Borough Park home where he allegedly peddled and stored massive amounts of N95 respirator masks, federal officials said.

Feldheim is also accused of price-gouging. On March 18, he’s suspected of selling a New Jersey doctor about 1,000 of the masks for $12,000, a markup of roughly 700 percent, authorities said.

The accused fraudster also directed another doctor to an Irvington, NJ, auto repair shop to pick up another order. There, the doctor reported to investigators that Feldheim was allegedly hoarding enough medical supplies “to outfit an entire hospital.”

The materials included hand sanitizers, Clorox wipes, chemical cleaning agents and surgical supplies.

By last Monday, Feldheim was operating from his Brooklyn home, offering to push surgical gowns to a nurse, the feds said.

“When the agents were within four to five feet of him, Feldheim allegedly coughed in their direction without covering his mouth,” the US attorney’s release said. “At that point, Feldheim told the FBI agents that that he had the Coronavirus,” the statement said.
Remember when this was all the rage and an invitation for an ass whoopin with HIV/AIDS?

States crying for supplies need to remember they are also competing with every citizen who is also looking for them.

Price Gouging .... 700% Markup
]

Sure, but that's not fraud unless again he lied about the price or otherwise misled the purchaser. I'm not saying it isn't illegal, or immoral, just that it isn't fraud.

We can't just interchange any negative term for a person we don't like. Why not call him an accused defenestrator or jay walker or murderer (all things he also isn't accused of)

Where did he get all of these supplies? How long has he been in collecting all of this stuff?
How did he get enough advance warning to start this?

This thing needs a thorough investigation, one that might find an answer=---unlike the BS Pelosi and Schiff want to run

Clem72, that's the best (and so far the only) use of that word, in a sentence, that I have ever seen! Bravo!!!

(I quickly read through your post, and then had to double back -- yep, you skillfully used the term "defenestrator"!!! And so casually and effortlessly! Dang! Respect! )

From New Latin defenestratio, from (“from; out”) + fenestra (“window”) + -atio (suffix indicating an action or process); compare Middle French défenestrer (modern French défenestrer), défenestration, German Fenstersturz. The verb defenestrate was formed later.


Noun
defenestration (countable and uncountable, plural defenestrations)


  1. The act of throwing something or someone out of a window. [from c. 17th c.]
