Ohio Brothers Claiming To Be UAE Royalty Charged With Fraud

The two East Cleveland, Ohio natives face 22 counts of federal fraud and money laundering charges that prosecutors say scammed several people out of up to $10 million. Zubair Abdur Razzaq Al Zubair, 41, claimed to be a prince, while his 30-year-old brother, Muzzammil Muhammad Al Zubair, claimed to be a hedge fund manager. According to an indictment, Zubair Abdur Razzaq Al Zubair claimed to be married to a princess and a member of a royal family in the United Arab Emirates, where he lived from 2008 to 2020. In August of 2021, the Al Zubair brothers “attended a signing ceremony between their company and one of the victims at the East Cleveland’s Mayor’s Office,” in reference to Nela Park, which was attended by “the East Cleveland mayor, his chief of staff, his law director and others.” After an investigation of more of the brother’s suspicious transactions, they were indicted last month for fraud and ordered to forfeit all money and property that they gained.
