Swindler's List update



Swindler's List will be updated regularly!



Update:

Rabbi Bernard Bergman... Orthodox Rabbi who owned a network of nursing homes. Convicted of Medicaid and tax fraud in 1976. Fined $2,500,000 USD and sentenced to a year in a New York State cooler.

Rabbi Avraham David, aka Earl Seth David... masterminded what may have been the largest immigration fraud scheme in US history. David ran an immigration mill out of his Manhattan law office, filing some 25 thousand fraudulent immigration applications and charging fees of as much as $30,000 USD. David created phony sponsors for the illegals, providing phony pay stubs, phony employer tax return information, phony letters of reference from prior employers and phony written offers of employment. He fled to Toronto Canada when he learned the feds were on to him and re-invented himself there as "Rabbi Avraham", even authoring a book: “Code of the Heart,” a treatise on Hebrew numerology that purports to reveal predictions of future events in the Bible based on a hidden code. In spite of this, after four years on the run, David was arrested and exradited back to the US. He pleaded guilty and faces up to eight years in federal cage. Also ordered to forfeit $2,500,000 million in proceeds.  Update: recently sentenced to five years in a Federal fun farm.

Rabbi Elazar Abuchatzeira... was one of Israel's leading kabbalists, and appeared in a list of the country's wealthiest people, with an estimated worth of $80 million USD (2011). He acquired much of this fortune by charging Jews for "blessings" - few, if any, of which materialized. Abuchatzeira was stabbed to death by another rabbi, and one time follower, who was displeased with the marital advice Abuchatzeira had given him. Under investigation for fraud in the US at the time of his death. Abuchatzeira also settled a tax fraud case in Israel for 20 million shekels, (approx. $5,000,000 USD)  even though the true amount owed is said to be much greater.

Rabbi Leib Glanz... one time chaplain for New York City's jails, Glanz arranged a lavish jail house bar mitzvah celebration for a wealthy inmate’s son (convicted swindler Tuvia Stern). Charged, along with his brother, of theft and conspiracy in a $220,000 USD federal rent subsidies scam that went on for over 15 years, a case that city authorities called the largest individual case of tenant fraud they'd ever investigated. Awaiting trial.

Eliyahu Bakshi-Doron... former Sephardi Chief Rabbi of Israel, awaiting indictment for his part in a fraud in which 1,500 members of the IDF and police force received false certificates of rabbinic ordination - entitling them to an extra NIS 2,000 - 4,000 (approx. $500 - $1,000 USD) a month in wages.

Rabbi Meshulam Rothschild... Brooklyn rabbi busted by the ATF for scamming New York out of nearly $200,000 USD a week in unpaid cigarette taxes. Rothschild is accused of purchasing untaxed cigarettes in Virginia, then peddling them in Chinatown and elsewhere in New York City. It's estimated Rothschild moved about 3,600 cartons a week. The state lost about $50 in tax on each contraband carton. Awaiting trial.

Rabbi Marvin Berkowitz... mastermind of a scheme that used the stolen identities of dead people and federal inmates to file for millions of dollars in phony tax refunds. Prosecutors said Berkowitz directed a ring that fraudulently collected at least $54,000,000 USD in tax refunds from the Internal Revenue Service as well as various states. Berkowitz then transferred the funds to bank accounts in Israel. In a story with a now familiar ring, Berkowitz fled to Israel soon after his indictment. He lived in Jerusalem for six years before Israeli officials finally returned him to the U.S. to face the charges. He plead guilty in federal court to mail fraud and conspiracy charges and was sentenced to 18 years and 4 months in prison. Seven others, including two of Berkowitz's sons and a son-in-law, were also convicted.

Rabbi Benjamin Herbst... falsified deeds and signatures to fraudulently obtain title to properties he didn't own. Herbst then imposed liens on these, then took out loans, using the fraudulently obtained properties as equity. The company making the loan was also controlled by Herbst.... Once attempted to steal an entire office building using this formula. Though the title fraud was clear, the rightful owners quickly discovered that Herbst's encyclopedic knowledge of New York real estate law made it painfully expensive for them to try to obtain the properties: the liens he'd imposed on these blighted them in the eyes of potential buyers; and even if the bona fide owner was able acquire bona fide title to the property he could still be liable for the sum of the loan outstanding. As yet uncharged.

Rabbi David Goldhirsh and Rabbi Lavel Schwartz... arrested for conspiracy to commit money laundering, tied to their dealings with infamous FBI informant and real estate developer, Solomon Dwek. Plead guilty and are awaiting sentencing.

Rabbi Lieb Pinter... former executive at a NY mortgage lender who defrauded Fannie Mae in a $44,000,000 USD home refinancing scheme. Refinanced Fannie Mae loans but instead of remitting the money to Fannie Mae he deposited it into his own accounts. Pinter has a criminal record that goes back to the late 1970s. Bribed a Congressman... and ran a corrupt poverty program program that fed children rotting, stale food. He sent salami and cheese sandwiches to children requesting kosher meals. Convicted, along with his partner in crime, Barry Goldstein, of conspiracy, wire fraud and bank fraud . Sentenced to more than eight years in federal lockup and ordered to pay back more than $43,000,000 USD in restitution.

Rabbi Levi Deutsch... arrested in operation BidRig. Deutsch used his connections to help launder $200,000 USD in crooked money through religious charities he controlled. Sentenced to 18 months in federal prison and ordered to forfeit $25,000.

Rabbi Moshe Zigelman... served a 2-year sentence for his role in a tax fraud scheme. Zigelman's Hasidic sect solicited an unknown number of $millions USD in donations, then funneled most of the money back to the wealthy donors - giving them huge tax breaks. In an unusual development, Zigelman refused to testify against other Jews and spent several more years in a federal lockup for contempt of court.

Rabbi Menachem Youlus... "The Indiana Jones of Rabbis". Claimed to have "rescued" more than 1,000 holocaust-era Torah scrolls, some of which he said he'd dug up at sites of mass executions by the Nazis. He also, "miraculously found" a Torah scroll hidden beneath the floorboards of a barracks at Bergen-Belsen. Sold his "finds" to unsuspecting Jews for $5,000 to $20,000 USD apiece. Eventually charged with wire fraud. As part of a plea agreement, Youlus  was ordered to repay his victims $1,200,000. He is free on $100,000 bond. Sentencing originally set for 21 June 2012 but this has been postponed.  Update: Youlus was  sentenced to 51 months in jail and ordered to pay some $990,000 in restitution.  Moral?  Don't Jew your fellow Jews!

Rabbi Levy Izhak Rosenbaum... arrested with five other rabbis as part of a massive FBI sting (Operation BidRig) after being caught on tape offering to sell a kidney for $160,000 USD. "I am what you call a matchmaker," Rosenbaum told an FBI informant trying to broker a deal. Witnesses described Rosenbaum, 58, as a “thug” who pulled a gun on one reluctant seller, telling him, “You’re here. A deal is a deal. Now, you’ll give us a kidney or you’ll never go home.” Federal prosecutors said the investigation initially focused on a money laundering network that operated between Brooklyn, N.Y.; Deal, N.J.; and Israel. The network is alleged to have laundered tens of millions of dollars through Jewish charities controlled by rabbis in New York and New Jersey.

Arrested along with Rosenbaum were:
•Rabbi Eliyahu Ben Haim... a rabbi at a synagogue in Deal, N.J., charged with money laundering. Sentenced to five years in federal prison.

Arnold Zaler... the kosher "hot dog king" of Denver; and a twice-convicted swindler who scammed family members and fellow Jews for nearly $2,500,000 USD via a string of frauds and forgeries.  Zaler once fleeced a disabled woman out of $100,000 by convincing her he wanted to marry her.  In one famous scheme he forged a US Senator's signature on a loan application. When indicted Zaler was released on bond - and promptly disappeared to Israel.  But his notoriety and the fact that he'd been swindling other Jews forced his return to the US.  Sentenced to fifteen years in a federal slammer.

Shmuel Kainan Klein... an Israeli national who sneaked into Zimbabwe masquerading as a South African Airways crew member. Arrested in Harare while trying to smuggle out diamonds worth $2,400,000 USD after a customs official noticed him acting jittery and sweating heavily. Acquitted by a Zimbabwean judge before his case was even brought to trial!  A news blackout regarding his name persists in the Israeli media.

Arthur Abba Goldberg... convicted in 1989 of mail fraud for his part in a conspiracy to defraud the US government in a $2,000,000,000 USD municipal bonds scheme that targeted poor communities. Fined $100,000 and sentenced to 18 months in federal prison.  Goldberg has since moved on with his life and is now the leader of JONAH, "Jews Offering New Alternatives to Homosexuality" - as well as President of his Jersey City temple.

David Haddad... a building manager arrested on Hate Crimes charges after being caught spray painting swastikas and antisemitic graffiti such as "All Jews must die!" around his Brooklyn neighborhood.  Haddad called his own mother, and others, leaving antisemitic messages on their answering machines. It's not known at this time how much if any money Haddad received for his rampage.

Hazon Yeshaya... an Israeli charity and soup kitchen with a worldwide presence whose director (the name was not initially released, but it is Hazon Yeshaya founder, Rabbi Abraham Israel) was arrested and charged with aggravated fraud, money laundering, falsifying corporate documents and forgery, after allegedly pocketing millions of shekels meant for Israel's poor.  Supporters included: British Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks; Elie Wiesel; Kurt Rothschild; Dr. Rami Benbenishty, Hebrew University of Jerusalem; Ehud Olmert; Rabbi Marvin Hier, Dean and Founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center; Ephraim Katzir....

Josef Andelman... the ringleader of a group of Australian parking meter thieves that in less than fifteen months stole $377,000 AUD in coins from parking meters in Melbourne.

Sentenced to four years in an Australian slammer.

Morris Olmer... former Connecticut state legislator and self described "big liberal" who was the ringleader of a mortgage fraud ring based out of New Haven. Olmer invented a complex scheme, with phony front companies, for defrauding private lenders and the US government out of $4,750,000 USD. Olmer sought out "straw buyers" who were paid to apply for fraudulently inflated mortgages for homes they couldn’t afford. The straw buyers would accept mortgage money from the government, then purchase the home for the actual, lesser price, funnel the difference to the conspiracy, then abandon the home to foreclosure. Olmer and his co-conspirators left a trail of blighted properties throughout southern Connecticut. Sentenced to five years in a federal slammer.

Lior Orgad, David Yamin, Mor Galanti, Guy Mayo, Elad Mayo, Asi Almakias, and Yaniv Kalbers... all Israeli nationals, plead guilty to organizing a phony lottery/telemarketing scheme that targeted elderly Americans, telling them that they had won substantial cash prizes which they would receive as soon as they paid the necessary fees and taxes. Of course, there was no lottery prize and the victims were collectively robbed of approximately $2,000,000 USD.

Avi Yanai... an Israeli citizen sentenced to 18 years in prison by the Moscow Military Court, for organizing an international network of sex traffickers. According to the court, from 1999 to 2007, when most of the network's agents were arrested, Yanai and his accomplices duped (mostly Slavic) women from the former USSR into believing they were getting well paid jobs in Europe and the Middle East, then sold hundreds of them into sex slavery in Israel, Italy, Spain, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates and other countries. The official estimate stands at 129 women, but some of the states still investigating the network put the number at several hundred.

Dennis Glick... president of B’nai B’rith International, indicted on federal charges of tax fraud. Charged with falsifying tax returns for a client and lying about it to investigators.

Stan Polley... one time manager of the Rock group Badfinger. Polley formed convoluted business structures then siphoned off money through them into his own pockets. Obtained much of Badfinger's money this way. The group ended up bankrupt and two of the founding members, Pete Ham and Tom Evans, killed themselves. Polley left show biz for good but soldiered on - in his pilfering and embezzling way - and in 1991 was ordered by a California court to repay $250,000 USD to an aeronautical entrepreneur he’d swindled; but according to the victim he never received any money.

Allen Klein... manager for the Rolling Stones, Beatles and others. Dropped by The Rolling Stones for unethical behavior in the 1960s but surreptitiously bought rights to their early catalogue from Stones' producer Loog Oldham. Became manager of the Beatles after Brian Epstein died by flattering John Lennon and presenting himself as a street savvy accountant. However, Paul McCartney never trusted him and it's believed that his refusal to allow Klein full power to control the Beatle's business arrangments was the main reason the band broke up. Investigated by the IRS in the 1970s for embezzling money from George Harrison’s benefit show, The Concert for Bangladesh. Sued British indie rock group The Verve over their hit “Bittersweet Symphony.” The band had sampled orchestration from “The Last Time,” a recording by The Rolling Stones that Klein controlled.

His last client - record producer Phil Spector - is now serving a 19 to life sentence for the murder of a starlet.

One time manager of Jefferson Airplane who was quickly and unceremoniously relieved of this duties and subsequently clogged the courts with 21 years worth of lawsuits.

Litigation with former BD founder David LaFlamme continues to the present.

Joshua David Gould... 31-year-old Orthodox Jew and securities broker. Charged with stealing approximately $4,000,000 USD from his (mostly) Orthodox Jewish clients. Sang to the authorities for a lessening of charges. "He was robbing Moishe to pay Saul" said his lawyer.

However, on week-ends he morphed into a Las Vegas “whale”, treated to the finest amenities by the casinos as he gambled away his client's investment money. Conned family, friends and acquaintances telling them they’d earn interest on short term loans to commercial clients. The scheme, which garnered up to $100,000,000 USD, dated back to 1979 prosecutors said. Nearly 300 investors claimed to have lost at least $52 million USD. Tried unsuccessfully to kill himself in June 2009 by overdosing on sleeping pills.

Fled to Brazil with his wife and five children to avoid jail. Arrested there and served 33 months on a separate insurance fraud charge.

Herman Rosenblatt... author of a fictional holocaust memoir, "Angel at the Fence".  Outed by fellow Jews when they realized his story of love and horror at Buchenwald would soon be exposed as a fraud by historical revisionists.

Misha Defonseca... wrote a fantastic holocaust "memoir" Misha: a memoir of the holocaust years. Defonseca claimed, among other things, that she lived with a pack of wolves; and killed - with her bare hands - a German soldier who was trying to rape her... when she was seven years old! Predictably this psychotic fantasy received rave reviews in the mainstream media and Defonseca pocketed about $15,000,000 USD before her fraud was finally exposed: "It's not the true reality, but it is my reality." she said. "There are times when I find it difficult to differentiate between reality and my inner world."  Although the book is clearly another holocaust hoax, Defonseca took it a step further by pretending she was Jewish. She is not, nor ever was, Jewish; but a strong case could be made for making her an honorary Jew!
