A man posing as an immigration lawyer defrauded a resident of Spring Close Highway to the tune of about $19,000 by promising to clear up his pending immigration case. The victim paid out the money over the course of several months at the end of last year, even going to California to meet the so-called attorney. He discovered that no work had been done on his case and called police at the beginning of this year. The fake lawyer and the money have disappeared, and police reported no leads.
