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 will be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
