Combatting Immigrant Fraud in Brooklyn

The Immigrant Fraud Unit works to prevent the exploitation of immigrants living in New York City. Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson says too often, innocent people are scammed out of their hard-earned money in exchange for false promises that someone might be able to help them with their citizenship status.

Thompson says he wants immigrants to know this is illegal and that free help is available, regardless of status. Melissa Rose Cooper attended a forum in Sunset Park on Sept. 26 aimed at informing the community of their rights.
