Two Men Charged With PPP Fraud Are Freed on $250,000 Bond As 4 Passports Turned In

SDNY MAG COURT EXCLUSIVE, Oct 24 -  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on October 24, two bond proceedings were held by Magistrate Judge Robert W. Lehrburger. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the Mag Court.

 The two defendants, presented together, were charged with defrauding banks and the SBA out of over $2 million in a Paycheck Protection Act scheme. They claimed to have two hundred employees, but had none.

  In fact, the prosecutor described them as self-employed, and both dual citizens of the US and Israel. Four passports were turned over.

Moshe Rosenfeld, treasurer of Sar Shalom (described in the Complaint as "purporting to be a not-for-profit entity providing financial aid to the Jewish community," had been arrested on Sunday, October 23; he got a Criminal Justice Act lawyer.

Zvi Zigelman was arrested earlier on October 24, and retained private counsel just back from a trial in EDNY that Inner City Press covered.

  Both were released on $250,000 bond, with two weeks to come forward to two financial responsible persons each to co-sign.

The case is US v. Rosenfeld, et al., 22-mj-8474 (Lehrburger)
