A fraudster who almost bamboozled the NSW government out of $430million by offering a fake shipment of masks is a self-proclaimed Texan oil executive known as 'Big Daddy'. 

Former American college footballer Arael Doolittle, 56, has pleaded guilty to a wire fraud charge after admitting trying to sell 50 million non-existent N95 masks to the state government last year.

In March 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic forced countries into lockdown, Doolittle, from Houston, began hunting for buyers of large quantities of masks.

On about March 30, Doolittle found a potential buyer in Premier Gladys Berejiklian's government. 

The only problem was he didn't have the masks, according to a plea agreement before the US Southern District Court for Texas. 

Doolittle 'falsely claimed that he possessed 50 million 3M N95 masks, and he offered to sell them to Australia for $5.50 per mask for a total purchase price ... of $US275million,' the court document said.
