Charged With Half Million Dollar Fraud Talreja Is Detained With Consent of Retained Counsel

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Feb 6 – As alleged it was a simple scheme: Milesh Talreja deposited a check for $500,000 written on an account with only $5,608.99 in it, then proceeded to withdraw the money over the court of a week in November 2019.

  On February 5 Talreja was presented near the end of a en evening session before U.S. District Court for Southern District of New York Magistrate Judge Sarah Netburn. 

  In the nearly empty gallery along with Inner City Press was what turned out to be Talreja's retained counsel, Alisha McCarthy. She consented to detention without prejudice to a later application for release on bail.

    On February 6 the case became unsealed and listed, among the withdrawals, three international wire transfers. The case is US v. Talreja, 20-mj-983 (Netburn).
