22-year-old Alexander Leszczynski attempted to seize $300 million worth of properties, and used fictitious charitable organizations to engage in fraud.
The Florida man had a plan to escape these charges though: A presidential pardon from Donald Trump.
Unfortunately, that pardon was also a fake as well.
The Department of Justice also said that Leszczynski frequently applied for, and received two Payroll Protection Plan loans, totaling about $195,910.
The DOJ also said he tried to deposit $2.7 million of worthless check into one of the charity entities, called Love & Bliss, and then, allegedly, laundered the money through multiple accounts.
When the U.S. froze one of his accounts that held over $300,000, Leszczynski then produced the fabricated pardon he claimed was signed by the former president in order to evade any impending charges.
When property owners and attorneys attempted to correct the fraudulent deeds, Leszczynski responded by sending harassing and threatening letters, emails, and faxes.
According to FOX 35 in Orlando, Leszczynski is facing federal charges of wire fraud, bank fraud, and money laundering, and if convicted on all counts, faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
