Actor Keith Middlebrook Arrested By Feds For Peddling Fake Coronavirus Vaccine & Cure

A lie don’t care who tell it and a scammer never takes a day off! Keith Middlebrook, a small-time California actor has been scooped by the feds and charged with fraud for claiming he had a cure and a vaccine for the Coronavirus.

Middlebrook, who had very small roles in films like Iron Man 2 and “Entourage,” told his millions of followers he had the cure for the Coronavirus as well as the vaccine.

He took it a step further by trying to solicit $300,000 from investors for a company that would allegedly create and market pills that would prevent the contraction of the virus and a shot that would cure COVID-19.

He promised potential investors a $30 million profit.

Via The Washington Post:

Keith Lawrence Middlebrook, 53, was arrested by the FBI on Wednesday during a meeting in which he delivered pills to a potential “investor” — an undercover agent — that Middlebrook claimed would prevent covid-19, the U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles said in a statement. 

He is charged with one count of attempted wire fraud, which carries a punishment of up to 20 years in prison.

In videos he posted this month to his 2.4 million Instagram followers, Middlebrook showed off nondescript white pills and a liquid injection he claimed would offer immunity and a cure, respectively. 

The self-described “Genius Entrepreneur” frequently accused Democrats, the media and federal and world health officials of creating mass hysteria as a ploy to hurt President Trump. And at one point, he claimed his drugs had the support of a doctor with the Trump administration.

“Not only did I make the cure, but this pill right here is the prevention,” he said in one video. “Meaning, if I walk into the Staples Center and everyone’s testing coronavirus positive, I can’t contract it. It’s impossible. … I have what makes you immune to the coronavirus.”

Keith Middleton is officially the first coronavirus-related criminal fraud case in the nation.

This dude doesn’t even look trustworthy!
