A Long Island firm lied about having ties to Jay-Z’s entertainment company Roc Nation to bilk investors out of $70 million in a Bernie Madoff-style scheme, according to court papers and alleged victims.
Among the investors in the credit-card company were Ben Brafman, the high-profile criminal-defense lawyer representing “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli, and Charles Alpert, heir to the Alpert family’s textile and real-estate fortune, sources told The Post.
Cardis International, which is based in Cedarhurst in Nassau County, is being probed by federal prosecutors in Central Islip over the alleged fraud, according to the documents and sources.
