Mark Maloney Scammed!

Thanks to Bajan Citizen for producing relevant links to the latest story making the rounds about Mark Maloney being scammed out of US10 million dollars purported to be a payment for 1 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine on behalf of Barbados and two other governments.

The blogmaster has two questions:

  1. On what basis was Maloney’s company Radical Investments Ltd selected to broker this transaction.
  2. Is the government out of pocket because of the errant transaction.
  3. How does being out of pocket USD6.7 million affect Maloney’s financial state to continue to do business.

Mark Maloney Says $12M COVID Vaccine Deal Was A Scam
https://www.law360.com/commercialcontracts/articles/1422923/barbados-co-says-12m-covid-vaccine-deal-was-a-scam

The case is Radical Investments Ltd. v. Good Vibrations Entertainment LLC et al., case number 9:21-cv-81761, in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida

Radical Investments Ltd. is a St Lucia registered company owned by Mark Maloney. 

He appears to have been swindled out of $6.7 millon USD from the governments of St Lucia, the Bahamas and Barbados who contributed money to buy COVID vaccines for their citizens.

“In April 2021, the Governments of Saint Lucia, The Bahamas and Barbados initiated a bulk purchase of AstraZeneca vaccines, as the minimum purchase from authorized suppliers was one million (1,000,000) vaccines.”

St Lucia contributed $7.3 million EC

Mark Maloney is deputy chair of the private sector group put together last March to fundraise and acquire more vaccines.

It is not clear what due dilligence Mr Maloney did before entering into this commercial arrangement with Good Vibrations Entertainment LLC. If you were looking to purchase pharmaceuticals would you do business with a company whith a name that connotes mechanical sexual services, and with an address at 21218 St Andrews Blvd Suite 318 that is a mailbox in a UPS store where 175 other fly by night companies also have their “headquarters”???

    You’re very presumptuous to assume what I’m not worried about.

    However, please explain how ASKING you a QUESTION means I’m “trying to chip away at (your) harmless words which (I) make with effort to interpret?”

    My friend, apparently it’s either English isn’t your first language or you’re semi-literate……… because I’ve realized you seem UNABLE to DIFFERENTIATE a QUESTION from a definitive statement.

    Maybe so but your preoccupation with my every words gives sufficient evidence for me to make my conclusion

    Yesterday in the house of Parliament a blatant undermining of the rules and laws which directs good governance and laws under a democracy was exposed by Senator Franklyn and your first object of today in your comments to me was one of attacking my intellect
    Be that as it may I could not care less I am comfortable in the way and manner I place my comments and would not be deter by your insults
    Hence I would use my low level of intellect to.speak out against the levelling attacks on Barbados democracy ongoing by the PM and cabinet in.the house of Parliament

    RE: “Maybe so but your preoccupation with my every words gives sufficient evidence for me to make my conclusion.”

    “Maybe so, but your preoccupation with RESPONDING to my every words gives sufficient evidence for me to make a SIMILAR conclusion” as well.

    RE: “Yesterday in the house of Parliament a blatant undermining of the rules and laws which directs good governance and laws under a democracy was exposed by Senator Franklyn and your first object of today in your comments to me was one of attacking my intellect”

    How do you know whether Caswell Franklyn is correct or not?

    I prefer to wait on more information before making any definitive comments on the issue.

    Ironically, this is the same Caswell Franklyn you used to ‘cuss’ and DISAGREED with on daily basis, when he criticized your former DLP administration, while asking him for more evidence to substantiate his claims.

    RE “Be that as it may I could not care less I am comfortable in the way and manner I place my comments and would not be deter by your insults.”

    Good for you.

    “Hence I would use my low level of intellect to.speak out against the levelling attacks on Barbados democracy ongoing by the PM and cabinet in.the house of Parliament.”

    That’s your prerogative. But, REMEMBER, everyone knows you exhibit a high level of DISHONESTY in so doing. And, this is evidenced by the fact you have a penchant for misrepresenting the truth and RELYING on inaccurate information from sources that are questionable or lack credibility, as your basis to “speak out” …………..

    ………….mainly for reasons of political expediency and to score cheap political points.

    In other words, you DO NOT have any CREDIBILITY in this forum, hence, the reason why you’re asked questions.

    Here endeth the lesson.
