Punish Man Who Allegedly Hoarded and Price Gouged Life-Saving Masks During Pandemic

N95 - CDC

Target: Geoffrey S. Berman, US Attorney of the Southern District of New York

Goal: Seek harshest punishment for pharmacist who allegedly hoarded life-saving medical masks during pandemic for profit.

A pharmacist in New York allegedly hoarded thousands of life-saving N95 masks to sell at exorbitant prices during the COVID-19 pandemic. As hospitals across the country struggled to supply these masks to their medical personnel, Richard Schirripa was allegedly keeping a massive stockpile to sell out of his car.

Schirripa reportedly spent around $200,000 amassing these masks, using his economic position to essentially take protective equipment away from those who needed it most — all for the sake of making a profit. His alleged actions are not only reprehensible, but illegal: the Defense Production Act, enacted in March, forbids any hoarding or price gouging of personal protective equipment. Sign below to demand that Richard Schirripa be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.


Dear Mr. Berman,

The accusations leveled against Richard Schirripa are disturbing: the licensed medical professional allegedly used his wealth and status to amass thousands of much-needed N95 masks in the midst of a global health crisis. If these accusations are accurate, Schirripa has committed the worst kind of profiteering, putting his own financial gain above the lives of others.

Schirripa’s alleged hoarding and price gouging are cruel, opportunistic, and an insult to the thousands of lives lost to COVID-19. I urge you to ensure that Schirripa is punished for his alleged crimes and prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law.
