The Kings County Mortgage Fraud and Real Estate Crimes Unit, which was launched in March, has indicted eight people and opened more than 80 mortgage fraud cases, Senator Charles Schumer and Kings County District Attorney Charles Hynes announced today. Among those indicted, according to a press release from the District Attorney’s office, were Lyndall Ingram, who allegedly had forged powers of attorney for 239 54th Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, that allowed him to sell the property to an innocent buyer; Nathaniel McLeon, who allegedly posed as an attorney and pretended he had the authority to sell 542 Hancock Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn; and Leonard Fedee, who allegedly told a prospective buyer that 146-03 133rd Avenue in Jamaica, Queens, was headed into foreclosure even though it was not in foreclosure or for sale. One of the eight defendants has not yet been apprehended. TRD
