Not the Onion: 'Fraud Guarantee' and 'Mafia Rave'

Arrested Giuliani Ukraine Associates Operated Companies Called 'Fraud Guarantee' and 'Mafia Rave'
<snip>

Ryan Lizza, the Chief Washington Correspondent at Politico and a Senior Political Analyst at CNN, pointed out in a tweet that Parnas co-founded a company called Fraud Guarantee, and Fruman was club owner of a venue called Mafia Rave


Fruman and Parnas are Soviet-born US citizens and businessmen. Fruman was born in Belurus, Reuters reports, but is—according to ProPublica—"well-connected" in Ukraine, where he owns a number of businesses. One of those businesses being a beach bar in Odessa called Mafia Rave. Another an export business involved in the shipping of goods between Ukraine and the U.S.

Ukrainian-born Parnas has worked for a number of stockbrokerages in South Florida, Buzzfeed reports. One of his businesses, Fraud Guarentee, was established to protect clients from financial crimes—although it had to be evicted after the company failed to pay the office rent.

In addition to their party donations—which include $325,000 to pro-Trump super PAC America First Action in 2018—both men were allegedly involved in efforts to pressure the Ukrainian government to investigate Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter. - Newsweek

1. That's why truth is stranger than fiction...

Shit like that might fit in a Mel Brooks film, but what editor would allow it in a non-satirical work of fiction?

4. Nitpicking here -

“Fraud Guarantee” or “Fraud Guarentee”?

And who’s blowing the spelling - Rudy’s Ukrainian Mutt ‘n’ Jeff or a Newsweek editor - or writer?
