In the complaint, filed in federal court on Wednesday September 6, offended party Fahad Ghaffar claims he invested $17 million into Paulson’s F40 vehicle organization in 2022 that would be changed over into a 50 percent value stake.

Ghaffar was also set to earn 10 extra percent for his work for the organization.

Paulson and his lawyers, notwithstanding, “continued to misrepresent to Ghaffar that he had purchased a 50% interest in F40,” the reports claim.

The entrepreneur claims he repeatedly requested documentation of the convertible note that reflected his ownership stake, but as recently as March 23, Paulson’s attorneys “indicated that they are still working on the note with Paulson’s general counsel and head of tax, because the features are ‘quite intricate,’” the filing affirms.
