Ohio Man Fined For Price Gouging N95 Masks
A Chagrin Falls man will give up thousands of dollars to end a coronavirus-related price gouging case.
Mario Salwan will return 15-thousand-dollars to his customers and pay 15-hundred-dollars in legal fees to the state. The Ohio Attorney General's office sued Salwan last week after learning he hoarded and then sold N95 masks to healthcare workers for 20-times their retail price. Meanwhile, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents in Cincinnati say they stopped shipment of counterfeit personal protective equipment. Agents intercepted two-thousand counterfeit N95 masks from China at the Cincinnati airport this week. The masks were bound for a home in Texas.
