Lawyer: Schaffel a Professional Swindler, Pornographer – MB#310 UPDATE
<i>Past reports and court docs shed light on Schaffel’s history</i>
JUNE 18 2006 – For a while now, the public has been treated to a one sided view of a case involving Michael Jackson and “professional swindler” Marc Schaffel.
It was big news when Schaffel filed a lawsuit against Jackson. However, Jackson’s countersuit got very little if any coverage by broadcast and cable networks.
Jackson’s countersuit accuses Schaffel of concealing and commingling funds, misappropriating funds, providing false books of account, and wrongfully profiting from falsely associating himself with Jackson after he was dismissed as a business associate.
Since the lawsuit and countersuit, the public has been getting nothing but leaks from those associated with Schaffel.
Interestingly enough, Jackson is far from the only person to make claims of being swindled by Schaffel.
