Andrew Leszczynski, 22, was caught in an extensive alleged fraud case and provided a falsified pardon from former US President Donald Trump, according to the US Attorney’s Office in Tampa.
“According to the court documents and the facts presented during the bond hearing, Leszczynski used fictitious charitable entities, such as Love & Bliss, Inc., to engage in numerous frauds. The schemes included fraudulently applying for and receiving two Payroll Protection Plan (“PPP”) loans totaling approximately $195,910 and engaging in a check-kiting scheme and attempting to deposit $2.7 million of worthless checks into the Love & Bliss, Inc. business account,” the office said in a statement released by United States Attorney Roger B. Handberg.
They don't stop at voter fraud:

When federal investigators apprehended him, the story took an unexpected turn.
“The United States ultimately seized $337,000 from an account Leszczynski controlled and, when he discovered that the money had been frozen, he attempted to have it released by producing a fabricated pardon purportedly signed by former President Donald Trump,” the statement read.
“In a separate fraud scheme, Leszczynski filed fraudulent warranty deeds purporting to deed to himself and his businesses 10 properties around the United States collectively valued at more than $300 million. When property owners and attorneys attempted to correct the fraudulent deeds, Leszczynski responded by sending harassing and threatening letters, emails, and faxes.”

The Daily Beast reported in 2021 that Leszczynski was attempting to seize two homes owned by Jeffrey Epstein.
Despite having scant proof of legitimate operations of any kind, a Christian nonprofit that claimed to claim ownership of two of Jeffrey Epstein’s residences obtained over $200,000 in COVID-19 relief loans in 2021.
The twentysomething behind it also has a strange and horrific personal past, most recently being accused of “karate-chopping” his own mother on the neck.

Love & Bliss Inc. filed deeds for two of the multimillionaire sex offender’s most infamous properties: his now-demolished Palm Beach mansion and his Zorro ranch outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico, late last year. The first claim was dismissed by a Florida judge, and the pedophilic financier’s beleaguered estate informed The Daily Beast that it wants to fight the second land grab in court in the coming months—warning that the legal battles could hinder preparations to recompense the iconic abuser’s victims.
But, before attempting to seize Epstein’s assets, the self-described “church religious organization” managed by a 22-year-old suspected (but never convicted) domestic abuser and stalker was successful in obtaining a loan from the federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program.

According to federal records, Love & Bliss received a $97,700 loan from the pandemic aid project in July 2020, which, according to the nonprofit ProPublica’s database, would help save 13 jobs.
A Palm Beach County court threw out both of these new files in February, calling them both fraudulent and defining Hung Shungli Investment as “a fake organization” created by Love & Bliss “for the purpose of wrongfully clouding title to the property.”
Love & Bliss was accepted for a second PPP loan, this time for $98,210, to save 13 jobs, exactly one week before the verdict was dismissed. The administration in charge of the rehabilitation program, the Small Business Administration, declined to comment for this story.
Love & Bliss was a no-show in court, according to the Epstein estate’s legal team, and they had never made contact with them directly or through an attorney. The lawyers for the deceased person also claimed that they had already “incurred enormous fees” in disposing of the fake deeds.
Leszczynski was charged with stalking twice in 2017, the first time involving a minor, according to public records. The second, filed in November of that year, said he had made “unwanted approaches” on a classmate and harassed her through Facebook messaging.
Leszczynski could face up to 30 years in federal prison if convicted.
