Bizarre lawsuit by ‘Bear Stearns’ alleges ‘$450M fraud’ by Bahamas-licensed securities broker

bear-stearns-companies
A bizarre and seemingly-frivolous lawsuit alleging a $450 million fraud by a Bahamas investment group and related individuals has been filed in New York by four Ukraine citizens and 35 suspiciously-named firms that purport to be domiciled in some of the seediest offshore jurisdictions, including one called "Bear Stearns", which claims to be registered in the Seychelles. UPDATE: On October 17th, 2021 - just four days after filing the complaint, the plaintiffs filed a notice of voluntary dismissal.
