In PPE Fraud Dispute With NFL Mark Baron After Dark Talk of FBI Contact Oct 11 Deadline

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 4 – Saadia Shapiro, a lawyer who operated as a middleman on PPE transactions, was sued by MSV Synergy and Mark Baron, a former National Football League player.       

          On January 14, 2022 U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Edgardo Ramos held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

 The complaint says that Shapiro "used his heightened skills.. to scam a professional football player out of $2 million." 

 Baron was trying to take money selling PPE.  On January 14 it was insisted that Shapiro never met Baron, that his only role was to make introductions. Reference was made to transactions in Thailand.

 More ominously, there was talk of contact by the FBI.  

Jump cut to October 4, 2022, when Judge Ramos held another conference. Inner City Press again covered it. Judge Ramos gave Baron until October 11 to advise if he intends to amend the complaint; if not, how he intends to proceed.

The case is MSV Synergy, LLC et al v. Shapiro et al., 21-cv-7578 (Ramos)
