Israeli businessman said suspected of scamming US company out of $24 million

Israeli businessman Patrick Aloni has been arrested on suspicion of scamming an American company out of 24 million dollars, Channel 12 news reports.

The report says the Israeli businessman promised to provide disposable rubber gloves to MSC Industry Supply Co. at a discounted price, a commodity in high demand during the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the police fraud division, Aloni pledged to supply 200,000 cartons of nitrile gloves from a factory in Vietnam to MSC for $24 million.

After MSC transferred the funds it became apparent that the factory in Vietnam knew nothing about Patrick Aloni, nor the company he claimed to own.
