3 Lawyers and Corrections Officer Charged with Real Estate Fraud

3 lawyers and correction officer among 12 charged with real estate fraud
The New York Daily News by William Sherman - February 4, 2010

Smith for NewsKings County District Attorney Charles Hynes (l.) announce charges against 12 people for real estate and mortgage fraud in a press conference at the office of the Kings County District Attorney. A man who collected $16,250 in rent for an apartment he didn't own was among a dozen people charged Thursday with real-estate fraud in Brooklyn. Three lawyers and a city correction officer were also named in the indictments announced by Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes. "There is an epidemic," Hynes said, adding the dirty dozen reaped more than $2.6 million in profits through the schemes.

The indictments charge that:
  • Earl Davis placed an ad on Craigslist and collected a full year's rent in advance after giving the victim a forged lease.
  • Correction Officer Margareth Blanc collected more than $30,000 in federal rent subsidies with forged applications while living in her sister's apartment.
  • Deric Nelson worked a phony deed scam, making it look like he owned a building he'd already sold - then rending vacant apartments.
  • Attorney Alexander Landy bought a home, took out a $500,000 mortgage, never registered the deed or the loan, and then sold the home without paying a nickel to the lender. He was able to fool the buyer's title company because there was no public record of the mortgage.
  • Another lawyer, Alan Rocoff, a court-appointed referee in the sale of a church, deposited $200,000 into his own account instead of turning the money over to the court. Both Landy and Rocoff have resigned from the bar. "Ordinarily, in real estate deals, you would say, 'Get a lawyer,'" said Hynes. "Now you say, 'Get an honest lawyer.' You have to pay attention to the lawyers you hire, you have to get referrals." Jean Kemp, a victim of one scam, described how shocked she was to get a call demanding payment for a mortgage on her home - since she'd paid off the mortgage 23 years ago. "It was so scary. I was just furious," she said. It turned out that a lawyer, Jarrett Haber, and his associate, took out a $225,000 mortgage on her home without her knowledge and used that money to pay a debt in another real estate scam, the indictment said.

I can't stop laughing. So a guy who watches criminals, and three others that uphold the laws of this state and country, are arrested in a real estate scam. You can't make this stuff up. Memo to Cuomo and Paterson: do something, or start packing your bags!

Impossible. An attorney would never do anything illegal.

An understatement said...

"There is an epidemic," Hynes said,

Saint Andrew, Patron Saint of Crooked Lawyers and Judges, wants his flock to learn from the culling of three of his flock. Think big. Grab a bigger piece of the action and buy indulgences from Saint Andrew and your local DA. See the successes of those faithful tithing to Saint Andrew. Saint Andrew says, there will be no free lunch for NY lawyers; pay your Master.

Know someone in Queens that has a similar situation. There is a Judge that is whitewashing the whole thing and his wife is a real estate broker. And get this his daughter is an assistant DA. They got all bases covered and the fix is in. When you go and complain against the Judge the other Judges cover up for him. There is no law or justice it's all a big scam -God Bless America!

Hynes must be running for AG or he would never make this move. This deed and mortgage fraud is going on all over. It's bad on Long Island. The feds should take a hard look at Judge Underwood and see what they find. Or are part of the cover up too?
