Fake Lawyer Scammed $120K from Great Neck Man, Cops Say
A third New York City man have been accused of scamming a 59-year-old Great Neck man out of $120,000 in a fraudulent Manhattan commercial real estate deal.
Nassau County police arrested Roderick Allen on charges of grand larceny and possession of a forged instrument.
Crimes Against Property Squad detectives alleged the 43-year-old Bronx man misrepresented himself as an attorney for the property seller and cashed the check that was supposed to be deposited in an escrow account.
Allen’s arrest comes after 41-year-old Harris Jean of the Bronx and 47-year-old Anthony Burrison of Brooklyn were charged with grand larceny in July for also allegedly misrepresenting themselves in the same deal.
Bail for Jean was set at $5,000 bond or $10,000 cash. Bail for Burrison was set at $15,000 bond or $7,500 cash.
Allen will be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
