Flatbush Man Charged For Preying On Immigrants

1


FLATBUSH – He promised green cards for their relatives, took their money and skipped town.

Yesterday Leroy Quammie, 48, of Flatbush was charged with a “scheme to defraud, grand larceny and immigrant assistance services fraud for claiming to be an agent with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and stealing $7,000 from two women for immigration-related services he promised but never delivered”, District Attorney Gonzales’ office informed yesterday.

Back in May of 2016, Quammie pretended to be a USCIS agent, and conned $4,000 out of one woman and $3,000 out of another for immigration papers – Green Cards and working papers for their relatives that he never applied for. Nor was he ever employed by USCIS either, investigation revealed.

  1. It happened to us recently. We knew it was a scam but got conned out of $4000. We need to find a place to report this. Those two women aren’t alone. This guy was referred to us by a so called frien so I believe was part of the scam as well. Karma is a mother fucking bitch. I can’t get in all details here how this scammer worked because it’s too consuming. He got what he deserved.
