A crooked gun broker secretly made thousands of recordings of conversations with corrupt NYPD cops, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.
The revelation likely will send shock waves through the department.

In a letter filed in Manhattan Federal Court, prosecutors said Alex (Shaya) Lichtenstein secretly recorded some 70,000 conversations, including many with cops.

In November, Lichtenstein pleaded guilty to bribing NYPD officers to obtain pistol licenses.

Lichtenstein saved the conversations to an e-mail account, “many of them contemporaneous memorialization of dealings of questionable legality with members of the NYPD,” according to the letter written by Assistant U.S. Attorney Martin Bell.

“During our initial review of those recordings, we learned that some of these calls implicated at least one of the defendants in this case.”

The feds said they also got “material” from the phones of Jeremy Reichberg, a Brooklyn businessman who is accused of doling out gifts to senior cops, including trips to the Super Bowl, Brazil and China, sources said.

That material was not described in any more specifics.

Lichtenstein pleaded guilty on Nov. 10 to offering a cop $6,000 in exchange for an expedited gun permit.

“I had a good and friendly relationship with New York City police officers. During these years, I gave police officers in the Licensing Division things of value, including money, knowing that by giving them those things, the officers would do me favors, including expediting gun license applications,” Lichtenstein, 45, said.

Sgt. David Villanueva is accused of accepting gifts in exchange for helping speed up weapons permits.

Police Officer Richard Ochetal, formerly of the gun licensing unit, pleaded guilty to charges relating to the probe — and is cooperating with cops, the feds said in June.

Deputy Chief Michael Harrington and Deputy Inspector James Grant were also arrested for allegedly acting as “cops on call” for Reichberg and another wealthy de Blasio donor, Jona Rechnitz.

Ocean County, N.J., Man Sentenced To One Year In Prison For His Role In Multi-Million Dollar Real Estate Investment Scheme
December 8, 2014

TRENTON, N.J. – A Lakewood, New Jersey, man was sentenced today to one year and one day in prison for his part in a real estate investment fraud scheme that defrauded investors of more than $1 million, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

Alex Schleider, 49, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Joel A. Pisano to an information charging him with one count of wire fraud. Judge Pisano imposed the sentence today in Trenton federal court.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

Schleider, Eliyahu Weinstein, 39, of Lakewood, and the other defendants persuaded victims to invest in the purported purchase of an apartment complex, “Belle Glade Gardens,” in Florida. They told the victims that Weinstein had the opportunity to purchase Belle Glade Gardens at a discounted price and immediately flip it at a substantial profit. Schleider and Weinstein further told the victims that Weinstein had already placed $2.5 million in the trust account of a Miami law firm for the transaction; that if the victims contributed another $2.5 million toward the transaction, those funds would remain in escrow at the Miami law firm until the deal closed; and that the victims would be repaid within 60 days. The victims wired $2.83 million to the Miami law firm in order to complete the Belle Glades Gardens transaction. Schleider and Weinstein did not use the money to purchase Belle Glades Gardens. Instead, they redirected the money from the law firm to accounts that they controlled, returned $1.8 million to the victims as a purported return on a prior Facebook investment, and used the remaining money for their own purposes.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Pisano Schleider to serve three years of supervised release and ordered him to pay restitution of $613,200 and forfeiture of $363,200.

Weinstein, 39, also pleaded guilty to charges related to his role in the scheme and is scheduled for sentencing on Dec. 15, 2014. Charges against a third conspirator, Aaron Muschel, 64, of Brooklyn, New York, who was charged in the criminal complaint filed against Weinstein and Schleider in May 2013, remain pending. The charges against him are merely accusations and he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

U.S. Attorney Fishman credited special agents of the FBI, under the direction of Special Agent in Aaron T. Ford in Newark, for the investigation leading to today’s sentencing. He also thanked agents of IRS–Criminal Investigation, under the direction of Acting Special Agent in Charge Jonathan D. Larsen, for their role in the investigation.

The government is represented by Counsel to the U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig; Gurbir S. Grewal, Chief of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Economic Crimes Unit; Assistant U.S. Attorney Zach Intrater, Deputy Chief of the General Crimes Unit; and Evan S. Weitz of the Asset Forfeiture and Money Laundering Unit.

This case was brought in coordination with President Barack Obama’s Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force (FFETF) which was created in November 2009 to wage an aggressive, coordinated and proactive effort to investigate and prosecute financial crimes. With more than 20 federal agencies, 94 U.S. attorney’s offices and state and local partners, it’s the broadest coalition of law enforcement, investigatory and regulatory agencies ever assembled to combat fraud. Since its formation, the task force has made great strides in facilitating increased investigation and prosecution of financial crimes; enhancing coordination and cooperation among federal, state and local authorities; addressing discrimination in the lending and financial markets and conducting outreach to the public, victims, financial institutions and other organizations. Over the past three fiscal years, the Justice Department has filed more than 10,000 financial fraud cases against nearly 15,000 defendants including more than 2,700 mortgage fraud defendants.

Beware of Moshe Friedman: Your Stomach Will Turn After You Read the Police Report
Moshe Friedman got a sweetheart deal which kept him out of jail and off the sex offender registry when he pled guilty on February 1, 2017 to a misdemeanor charge of “child endangerment” (NY Daily News).

Some of his defenders will say he didn’t really do anything serious. Maybe he just slapped a boy who was misbehaving. But you won’t say that after you read the police report with allegations of a string of sadistic sexual tortures that led to his indictment for multiple felony acts which could have put him in prison for decades.

According to the signed and sworn police report which was the basis of his indictment: The People of the State of New York County of Kings v Moshe Friedman:

…Between September 01, 2013 … and June 06, 2014 … at … [a yeshiva in Boro Park], the defendant … on multiple incidents per month …

Did strike the informant’s hand with defendant’s hand when informant’s hand was injured and treated with a cast
Did place defendant’s hand on the informant’s exposed buttocks
Did grab the informant’s penis,
Did insert the defendant’s finger into the informant’s anus
Did insert a banana into the informant’s anus
Did put the defendant’s mouth on the informant’s buttocks
Did place the informant’s penis inside the defendant’s mouth
Did bite the informant’s penis with defendant’s mouth
Did tie a string around the informant’s penis
Did shove a rag into the informant’s mouth
Did tie the informant’s lips shut with string
Did display a gun to the informant and state to the informant in sum and substance, “you’d better not tell your parents, or I’ll kill you and your family.”
The … [boy was born in] 2007.

Moshe friedman (click on pic to enlarge)

This is a description of nine months of severe physical violence, sexual abuse, life-threatening terror, and perverse sadism which was inflicted on a six-year-old child.

And yet, no jail time and no inclusion on the sex offender registry. All this because the child was unable or unwilling to testify and because the DA probably did not beat the bushes to find other victims that might have testified.

Arthur Aidala

The family might have been afraid to have their son to testify because they were going to be up against, Arthur Aidala., Brooklyn’s highest paid criminal defense lawyer. Aidala got the conviction of Baruch [Mordechai] Lebovitz overturned on appeal and then got a plea deal with only a few more months of jail time. Aidala was the closest of buddies with former DA Charles Hynes and used that connection to influence DA staff.

The current DA, Eric Gonzalez was part of the old Hynes machine. So they had to worry the fix might be in. Most Hasidim in Brooklyn assume the fix is in with the DA. Everyone in Brooklyn who pays attention to these matters know the DA is pressured by the Haredi community to go easy on orthodox sex abusers. Everyone also knows that a DA running for election or reelection, courts the Haredi block vote. And Gonzalez is running for election to the position to which he was just appointed after the death of DA Ken Thompson.

Agudath Israel VP R. Zwiebel & Bkln DA Eric Gonzalez

The family may also have been worried that Aidala would earn his high fees by brutalizing the child if he went on the stand.

In all likelihood, the family may have been intimidated by their Haredi community into going easy on Moshe Friedman. Shamefully, most of the community still believes that keeping a fellow Jew out of jail is important even if he is known to be a child molester.

So at the end of the day they settled for a misdemeanor of child endangerment which isn’t even explicitly about sexual abuse. But have no doubt about the basis of the conviction. Look at the probation terms for the next three years (Daily News). Moshe Friedman must:

Surrender his Department of Education teaching license
Never contact the victim or be around anyone under the age of 18
Not speak to other sex offenders
Not watch pornography
Not make calls to phone-sex services
Not use the computer to view sexual material
Incredibly there isn’t even a requirement for psychological treatment on a continuing basis.

scales of justice and childAt the end of the day I say NO THANK YOU to

The Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez and his head of sex crimes, Miss Gregory.
The Haredi community that intimidates victims
Agudah and any rabbi who claims you need a rabbi to decide whether sex crimes should be reported to the police
Those who funded the lawyer at ~$800 an hour
Shomrim which will not publicize the danger posed by Friedman
Every Haredi askan who leans on the DA to go easy on Haredim who abuse their children
I know that I wouldn’t let him anywhere near children and I would want other parents to be warned. That is why almost anyone knowing these facts would want him on the sex offender registry. But since he isn’t, folks will have to spread the word on their own.

7rl6rwwn2If you know of other criminal acts by Moshe Friedman share this information with the sex crimes unit (aka Special Victims Unit of the NYPD @ (718) 230–4416) even if they happened in another jurisdiction or they are past the statute of limitations, or you are not personally willing to pursue prosecution. Any additional information could help lead to an additional conviction, or to the alteration of the terms of probation, or to his imprisonment for violating the terms of his probation. If they happened in another jurisdiction contact the sex crimes unit in that jurisdiction. If they involved crossing state or international lines in any manner, contact the FBI.

If you request, the comment will never be seen by anyone else.

from lost messiah about platinum partners


January 4, 2017 LostMessiah Black Elk, Corruption, Diamonds, Money Laundering, Murray Huberfeld, Platinum Partners, Ponzi and Pyramid SchemesDavid Bodner, Mark Nordlicht, Murray Huberfeld, Platinum Fund, Platinum Partners

LostMessiah 4 January 2016

LostMessiah was and has been the brainchild of several people who began this venture last February with a few stories already in our heads, Platinum being front and center.

From the very beginning we made clear that something was very wrong with Platinum, beginning with the extraordinary, though irrational returns. We then raised the question of David Bodner and a piece of property (191 Viola Road) that transferred names rather nefariously in Rockland County, New York.

We questioned the Africa-Israel connection and most notably those who financed Platinum in its early years: David Bodner and Murray Huberfeld and their band of merry… Philanthropists? No.

We posted diagrams.

Huberfeld Ponzi1.3

We showed you the connections between Seabrook and Platinum, COBA and Platinum. We even spoke of Black Elk, a story still in its making. We believe that most of the Platinum investor money (which is likely currently in the family trusts of Bodner and Huberfeld and in the yeshivas begun by Nordlicht and his family) belongs to Black Elk investors who were taken for a ride during a tender offer which was specifically intended to drain the company of its assets.

That story is still one to be told but unfortunately 12 pages later, we have found a web of lies and a spider with far more than eight legs and we have not even scratched the surface.

The investor money has not been spent, in our view. It has been funneled. The trick is going to be getting it out from under the various trust laws protecting it. The key to Huberfeld’s participation in all of this beyond his family trusts is his property which has more recently been transferred to his wife in a quit-claim deed.

There were people questioning – just too few listening.

Molested In The Mikva
Bnei Brak man arrested, indicted and charged with sodomy and indecent assault against three boys

A resident of the haredi city of Bnei Brak was arrested, indicted and charged earlier today with sodomy and indecent assault against three boys, all less than 16 years old. The assaults took place in a Bnei Brak mikva, ritual bath as the boys immersered and as they showered beforehand, the Jerusalem Post reported.

The man also allegedly forced the boys to perform sex acts.

The District Attorney asked the court to remand the man, who according to court order cannot be named, until the end of the legal proceedings against him.

A mikva employee noticed the man following one of the boys into the mikva and called a member of what the Jerusalem Post calls “a local Haredi organization” who came to the mikva and held the accused molester until police arrived.

man stabbed in Safra sefardic shul in aventura

A man stabbed another man three times at a Sephardic Aventura synagogue on Tuesday morning, police said.

The victim and the attacker knew each other, said Maj. Michael Bentolila, a spokesman for Aventura police. Both men regularly attended services at Beit Edmond Safra, on 19275 Mystic Point Drive, and the victim was likely at the synagogue for morning services when he was stabbed just before 7 a.m.

Bentolila said that the assault was over a “domestic-related issue” and that the victim was expected to fully recover from his wounds. Police took the attacker into custody.
